A simple solution to the word spotting problem is experimented. Continuous Speech Recognition (CSR) techniques are adopted, with the background speech represented by a filler templates set defined through vector quantization algorithms. Quantitative results about the performed experiments are given. Keywords: Word Spotting, Continuous Speech Recognition, Vector Quantization.
