Dragon Systems, Edward W Porter, September 28, 1999: US05960394 (246 worldwide citation)

A word recognition system is disclosed for converting spoken utterances into either text or commands. The system runs on a platform capable of running a plurality applications. Text and commands are sent from a word recognition application to one or more user applications. In addition, information p ...

Edward W Porter: Voice recognition system. Dragon Systems, Edward W Porter, May 9, 1989: US04829576 (241 worldwide citation)

A text locating system recognizes spoken utterances, uses the recognized words as a search string, and searches text for words matching that search string. The probability that a given vocabulary word is selected as a search word is altered both by limiting the recognizable vocabulary to words in th ...

A method is provided for deriving acoustic word representations for use in speech recognition. Initial word models are created, each formed of a sequence of acoustic sub-models. The acoustic sub-models from a plurality of word models are clustered, so as to group acoustically similar sub-models from ...

Laurence S Gillick, Steven A Wegmann, Jonathan P Yamron: Training and using pronunciation guessers in speech recognition. Edward W Porter, December 16, 2008: US07467087 (167 worldwide citation)

The error rate of a pronunciation guesser that guesses the phonetic spelling of words used in speech recognition is improved by causing its training to weigh letter-to-phoneme mappings used as data in such training as a function of the frequency of the words in which such mappings occur. Preferably ...

Laurence Gillick, Paul G Bamberg, James K Baker, Robert S Roth: Method for creating and using multiple-word sound models in speech recognition. Dragon Systems, Edward W Porter, June 6, 1989: US04837831 (153 worldwide citation)

A first speech recognition method receives an acoustic description of an utterance to be recognized and scores a portion of that description against each of a plurality of cluster models representing similar sounds from different words. The resulting score for each cluster is used to calculate a wor ...
