This paper describes the development of fast (less than 10 times real-time) large vocabulary continuous speech recognition (LVCSR) systems based on technology developed for unlimited runtime systems assembled for participation in recent DARPA/NIST LVCSR evaluations. A general system structure for 10 times real-time systems is proposed and two specific systems that have been built for Broadcast News (BN) and Conversational Telephone Speech (CTS) recognition are described. The systems were evaluated in the DARPA/NIST April 2003 Rich Transcription evaluation. Results are reported and contrasted with unlimited runtime systems and previous fast systems.

If you have difficulty viewing files that end '.gz', which are gzip compressed, then you may be able to find tools to uncompress them at the gzip web site.

If you have difficulty viewing files that are in PostScript, (ending '.ps' or '.ps.gz'), then you may be able to find tools to view them at the gsview web site.

We have attempted to provide automatically generated PDF copies of documents for which only PostScript versions have previously been available. These are clearly marked in the database - due to the nature of the automatic conversion process, they are likely to be badly aliased when viewed at default resolution on screen by acroread.
