5th International Conference on Spoken Language Processing
The recognition of broadcast news is a challenging problem in speech recognition. To achieve the long-term goal of robust, real-time news transcription, several problems have to be overcome, e.g. the variety of acoustic conditions and the unlimited vocabulary. Recently, a number of sites have been working on content-addressable multi-media information sources. In the presented paper, we focus on extending this work towards a multi-lingual environment, where queries and multimedia documents may appear in multiple languages. In cooperation with the Informedia project at CMU, we attempt to provide cross-lingual access to German and Serbo-Croatian newscasts.
