New methods for the analysis of repeated utterances

Geoffrey Zweig

This paper proposes three novel and effective procedures for jointly analyzing repeated utterances. First, we propose repetitiondriven system switching, where repetition triggers the use of an independent backup system for decoding. Second, we propose a cache language model for use with the second utterance. Finally, we propose a method with which the acoustics from multiple utterances — not necessarily exact repetitions of each other — can be combined to into a composite that increases accuracy. The combination of all methods produces a relative increase in sentence accuracy of 65.7% for repeated voice-search queries.
