An Analysis of Speech Recognition Performance Based Upon Network Layers and Transfer Functions
Speech is the most natural way of information exchange. It provides an efficient means of means of man-machine communication using speech interfacing. Speech interfacing involves speech synthesis and speech recognition. Speech recognition allows a computer to identify the words that a person speaks to a microphone or telephone. The two main components, normally used in speech recognition, are signal processing component at front-end and pattern matching component at back-end. In this paper, a setup that uses Mel frequency cepstral coefficients at front-end and artificial neural networks at back-end has been developed to perform the experiments for analyzing the speech recognition performance.
