Abstract

A sharable software repository for Japanese LVCSR (Large Vocabulary Continuous Speech Recognition) is introduced. It is designed as a baseline platform for research and developed by researchers of different academic institutes under a governmental support. The repository consists of a recognition engine (Julius), Japanese acoustic models and statistical language models as well as Japanese morphological analysis tools. These modules can be easily integrated and replaced under a plug-and-play framework, which makes it possible to fairly evaluate components and to develop specific application systems. Assessment of these modules and systems in a 20000-word dictation task is reported. The software repository is freely available to the public.
