This paper describes the development of the Cambridge University Fall 2004 Rich Transcription evaluation structural metadata systems. Details are given concerning the systems that were constructed for the Conversational Telephone Speech Slash Unit Boundary Detection, Filler Word Detection, and Interruption Point detection tasks, as well as for the Broadcast News Slash Unit Boundary Detection task. The systems described all used adapted versions of the same generic architecture. The use of large training data sets for the Slash Unit Boundary Detection task is considered, and development and evaluation results are given for all the 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.
