Recent work at the Centre for Speech Technology Re- search (CSTR) at the University of Edinburgh has de- veloped an accent-independent lexicon for speech syn- thesis (the Unisyn project). The main purpose of this lexicon is to avoid the problems and cost of writing a new lexicon for every new accent needed for synthesis. Only recently, a first attempt has been made to use the Keyword Lexicon for automatic speech recognition.
