We first take up the problem involved in automatic labelling, and review its present-day applications to automatic speech-processing. We then go over the main approaches to this problem. Next, we describe both the formal bases upon which the model we use rests, and the characteristics of the VERIPHONE System we have developed. Finally, as a way of showing how we use normalization -both temporal and of cues- we supply some sample results we have secured.
