Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


This paper describes the contribution of automatic speech recognition (ASR) within the framework of MUMIS (Multimedia Indexing and Searching Environment). The domain is football commentaries. The initial results of carrying out ASR on Dutch and English football commentaries are presented. We found that overall word error rates are high, but application specific words are recognized reasonably well. The difficulty of the ASR task is greatly increased by the high levels of noise present in the material.
