This paper describes our automatic speech recognition system for IWSLT2014 evaluation campaign. The system is based on weighted finite-state transducers and a combination of multiple subsystems which consists of four types of acoustic feature sets, four types of acoustic models, and N-gram and recurrent neural network language models. Compared with our system used in last year, we added additional subsystems based on deep neural network modeling on filter bank feature and convolutional deep neural network modeling on filter bank feature with tonal features. In addition, modifications and improvements on automatic acoustic segmentation and deep neural network speaker adaptation were applied. Compared with our last year’s system on speech recognition experiments, our new system achieved 21.5% relative improvement on word error rate on the 2013 English test data set.

This study presents the NICT automatic speech recognition (ASR) system submitted for the IWSLT 2013 ASR evaluation. We apply two types of acoustic features and three types of acoustic models to the NICT ASR system. Our system is comprised of six subsystems with different acoustic features and models. This study reports the individual results and fusion of systems and highlights the improvements made by our proposed methods that include the automatic segmentation of audio data, language model adaptation, speaker adaptive training of deep neural network models, and the NICT SprinTra decoder. Our experimental results indicated that our proposed methods offer good performance improvements on lecture speech recognition tasks. Our results denoted a 13.5% word error rate on the IWSLT 2013 ASR English test data set.
