Reconnaissance automatique de phonèmes guidée par les syllabes
Olivier Le Blouch, Patrice Collen.

This paper presents a phonetic transcription system of French speech. This recognizer is based on a phonetic transcription driven by syllables, a syllabic bigram language modelling and a HMM topology adapted to syllables. The phone error rate obtained is compared to basic, usual systems at phonetic level : once the resulting syllables have been converted to phones, the phone error rate on a 12 minute-part of BREF80 corpus is as low as 15.8% with 35 phones.
