in this paper, we present two tone recognition methods for Chinese continuous speech and the way of integrating methods with the HMM-based speech recognition system. The first method we call it Gaussian Mixture Tone Models (GMTM) method, the second is tone Clustering-Mapping (CM) method. Both of them are statistic methods. At the end of the paper, we will also provide the comparison result of these two methods with the tone classification accuracy tested on the Chinese continuous speech database of national "863 project.
