Phonetic query expansion for spoken document retrieval

Jonathan Mamou, Bhuvana Ramabhadran

We are interested in retrieving information from speech data using phonetic search. We show improvement by expanding the query phonetically using a joint maximum entropy N-gram model. The value of this approach is demonstrated on Broadcast News data from NIST 2006 Spoken Term Detection evaluation.
