In this paper, we first introduce the use of Gaussian mixture models (GMM) for Chinese tone classification in continuous speech. Then, we explain how to integrate it with the HMM-based speech recognition system. Finally, we provide the tone classification accuracy of this probabilistic method which is tested with Chinese continuous speech database of national 863" project.
