Phonemic Segmentation and Labelling using the MAUS Technique.
Workshop New Tools and Methods for Very-Large-Scale Phonetics Research, 28. - 31. Januar 2011, Philadelphia, PA, USA.
We describe the pronunciation model of the automatic segmentation technique MAUS based on a data-driven Markov process and a new evaluation measure for phonemic transcripts relative symmetric accuracy; results are given for the MAUS segmentation and labelling on German dialog speech. MAUS is currently distributed as a freeware package by the Bavarian Archive for Speech Signals and will also be implemented as a web-service in the near future.
