EUROSPEECH 2001 Scandinavia
Based on BBN's Rough'n'Ready suite of technologies used in the DARPA Hub-4 evaluations we describe the Sail-Labs Media Indexer system aiming at processing European English television broadcasts. We discuss the development of a European English broadcast news corpus, suitable for measuring performance of system components, such as speaker identification and speech recognition. We further report evaluation results on our multi-purpose test set, and outline the integration of real-time indexing into a spoken document retrieval system.
