In this paper, two systems are proposed for the task of capitalisation generation. The first system is a slightly modified speech recogniser. In this system, every word in the vocabulary is duplicated: once in a decapitalised form and again in capitalised forms. In addition, the language model is re-trained on mixed case texts. The other system is based on Named Entity (NE) recognition and punctuation generation, since most capitalised words are first words in sentences or NE words. Both systems are compared for speech input. The system based on NE recognition and punctuation generation shows better results in Word Error Rate (WER) and in F-measure than the system modified from the speech recogniser.

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.
