This paper describes an improved input coding method for a textto- phoneme (TTP) neural network model for speaker independent speech recognition systems. The code-book is self-organizing and is jointly optimized with the TTP model ensuring that the coding is optimal in terms of overall performance. The codebook is based on a set of single layer neural networks with shared weights. Experiments show that performance is increased compared to the NETTalk and NETSpeak models.
