AbstractWe propose the melding of various technologies for our unique handheld transcription device for speech and speaker recognition. Our solution will utilize beam-forming coupled with the POCKETSPHINX speech recognizer to provide transcription on the hand-held device. To achieve further reduction in recognition error rate through robustness to background noise and environment conditions we will combine multi-channel signal enhancement techniques such as blind source separation with single-channel signal enhancement techniques such as spectral subtraction and feature enhancement techniques such as cepstrum normalization. An initial design of our prototype transcription device is also presented.
