Sixth European Conference on Speech Communication and Technology
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.
