Abstract

A table look-up method is proposed for the estimation of articulatory parameters. The articulatory parameters can be estimated using less calculation time and with the same degree of precision obtained in an earlier method by using domain-restricted one-step search. A recognition method for vowels that compensates for coarticulations is investigated. The effectiveness of the method is shown by its high recognition rate in a recognition test with vowels in city names. The phoneme recognition rate for 50 city names uttered by 4 male and 4 female speakers was 90. 5%.
