Speech recognition is a difficult task, particularly if the demand is to do so in noisy real-life conditions. In this study, Bangla short speech commands data set has been reported, where all the samples are taken in the real-life setting. Speech recognition is the inter-disciplinary sub-field of computational linguistics that develops methodologies and technologies that enables the recognition and translation of spoken language into text by computers. It is also known as automatic speech recognition (ASR), computer speech recognition or speech to text (STT).It incorporates knowledge and research in the linguistics, .

Early work[ edit ] In three Bell Labs researchers, Stephen. Their system worked by locating the formants in the power spectrum of each utterance.
Gunnar Fant developed the source-filter model of speech production and published it inwhich proved to be a useful model of speech production. Unfortunately, funding at Bell Labs dried up for several years when, inthe influential John Pierce wrote an open letter that was critical of speech recognition research.
Raj Reddy was the first person to take on continuous speech recognition as a graduate student at Stanford University in the late s. Previous systems required the users to make a pause after each word. Also around this time Soviet researchers invented the dynamic time warping DTW algorithm and used it to create a recognizer capable of operating on a word vocabulary.
Although DTW would be superseded by later algorithms, the technique of dividing the signal into frames would carry on. Achieving speaker independence was a major unsolved goal of researchers during this time period.
InDARPA funded five years of speech recognition research through its Speech Understanding Research program with ambitious end goals including a minimum vocabulary size of 1, words.
It was thought that speech understanding would be key to making progress in speech recognition, although that later proved to not be true. Four years later, the first ICASSP was held in Philadelphiawhich since then has been a major venue for the publication of research on speech recognition.
Katz introduced the back-off model inwhich allowed language models to use multiple length n-grams. As the technology advanced and computers got faster, researchers began tackling harder problems such as larger vocabularies, speaker independence, noisy environments and conversational speech.
In particular, this shifting to more difficult tasks has characterized DARPA funding of speech recognition since the s. For example, progress was made on speaker independence first by training on a larger variety of speakers and then later by doing explicit speaker adaptation during decoding.
Further reductions in word error rate came as researchers shifted acoustic models to be discriminative instead of using maximum likelihood estimation.
This processor was extremely complex for that time, since it carried However, nowadays the need of specific microprocessor aimed to speech recognition tasks is still alive: Practical speech recognition[ edit ] The s saw the first introduction of commercially successful speech recognition technologies.
By this point, the vocabulary of the typical commercial speech recognition system was larger than the average human vocabulary. Handling continuous speech with a large vocabulary was a major milestone in the history of speech recognition. Huang went on to found the speech recognition group at Microsoft in Apple originally licensed software from Nuance to provide speech recognition capability to its digital assistant Siri.
Four teams participated in the EARS program: EARS funded the collection of the Switchboard telephone speech corpus containing hours of recorded conversations from over speakers.WELCOME TO THE INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY LABORATORY.
