A New Supervised-Predictive Compensation Scheme for Noisy Speech Recognition

We present a new predictive compensation scheme which makes no assumption on how the noise sources alter the speech data and which do not rely on clean speech models. Rather, this new scheme makes the (realistic) assumption that speech databases recorded under different background noise conditions are available. The philosophy of this scheme is to process these databases in order to build a "tool" which will allow it to handle new noise conditions in a robust way. We evaluate the performances of this new compensation scheme on a connected digits recognition task and show that it can perform significantly better than multi-conditions training, which is the most widely used techniques in these kind of scenarios.
