  • Indexing and retrieval of broadcast news 

    Renals, Steve; Abberley, Dave; Kirby, David; Robinson, Tony (Elsevier Science B.V., 2000-09)
    This paper describes a spoken document retrieval (SDR) system for British and North American Broadcast News. The system is based on a connectionist large vocabulary speech recognizer and a probabilistic information ...
  • Recognition, indexing and retrieval of British broadcast news with the THISL system. 

    Robinson, Tony; Abberley, Dave; Kirby, David; Renals, Steve (International Speech Communication Association, 1999)
    This paper described the THISL spoken document retrieval system for British and North American Broadcast News. The system is based on the ABBOT large vocabulary speech recognizer and a probabilistic text retrieval system. ...
  • Retrieval of Broadcast News Documents with the THISL System 

    Abberley, Dave; Renals, Steve; Cook, Gary (IEEE, 1998-05)
    This paper describes a spoken document retrieval system, combining the ABBOT large vocabulary continuous speech recognition (LVCSR) system developed by Cambridge University, Sheffield University and SoftSound, and the PRISE ...
  • Retrieval of broadcast news documents with the THISL system. 

    Abberley, Dave; Renals, Steve; Cook, Gary; Robinson, Tony (1999)
    This paper describes the THISL system that participated in the TREC-7 evaluation, Spoken Document Retrieval (SDR) Track, and presents the results obtained, together with some analysis. The THISL system is based on the Abbot ...
  • The THISL broadcast news retrieval system. 

    Abberley, Dave; Kirby, David; Renals, Steve; Robinson, Tony (1999)
    In this paper we introduce a set of related confidence measures for large vocabulary continuous speech recognition (LVCSR) based on local phone posterior probability estimates output by an acceptor HMM acoustic model. In ...
  • The THISL SDR system at TREC-8 

    Abberley, Dave; Renals, Steve; Ellis, Dan; Robinson, Tony (Department of Commerce, National Institute of Standards and Technology, 2000)
    This paper describes the participation of the THISL group at the TREC-8 Spoken Document Retrieval (SDR) track. The THISL SDR system consists of the realtime version of the ABBOT large vocabulary speech recognition system ...
  • The THISL SDR system at TREC-9. 

    Renals, Steve; Abberley, Dave (2001)
    This paper describes our participation in the TREC-9 Spoken Document Retrieval (SDR) track. The THISL SDR system consists of a realtime version of a hybrid connectionist/HMM large vocabulary speech recognition system and ...
