The adaptation of existing general-purpose speech recognition and language understanding systems can greatly reduce the cost of developing applications. However, the components must have appropriate characteristics for this to be possible. Work is in progress to adapt two task-independent components, the AURIX speech recognizer and the CLARE language processor to create a system allowing spoken queries of the PC-based Autoroute route planning pack- age.

Keywords: adaptability, general purpose, speech recognition, language understanding, AURIX, CLARE
