Abstract

In a speech-recognition assist device, the identification of word boundaries in continuous speech recognition can be improved by providing the speaker with a key similar to a telegraph key which he or she depresses once for each spoken word. Even if complete synchronization of keystroke and word is not achieved, the keystroke pattern can be used to materially improve the probability of correct segmentation. This is true even if strokes are omitted from or added to sentences, in that the keystroke information is envisioned to be used in conjunction with segmentation methods.
