This paper introduces a new approach for generation of phonetic transcriptions for voice dialing applications. where on-line construction of user vocabularies is mandatory. The proposed method allows adaptive selection of new transcriptions requiring much less speech utterances for system training than other approaches. The new approach is compared to other classical approaches showing a clear improvement on performance and efficiency.
