Abstract

In this paper, the performance of different Bangla (widely used as Bengali) Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) systems based on local features (LFs) to observe the effects of multilayer neural network (MLN) on it, is evaluated. These ASR systems use 3000 sentences uttered by 30 speakers from a wide area of Bangladesh, where Bangla is used as a native language. In the experiments, at first LFs are extracted from the input speech and these LFs are inputed into a multilayer neural network (MLN) for obtaining phoneme probabilities for all the Bengali phonemes considered in this study. Then, these phoneme probabilities are modified by taking logarithm or normal values, and either of these values are inputted to the hidden Markov model (HMM) based classifier to obtain word corrrect rate (WCR), word accuracy(WA) and sentence correct rate (SCR). From this study, it is observed that the ASR method which incorporates an MLN in its arechitecture improves the word recognition accuracy with fewer components in HMMs.
