Abstract

This paper describes our participation in the TREC-9 Spoken Document Retrieval (SDR) track. The THISL SDR system consists of a realtime version of a hybrid connectionist/HMM
large vocabulary speech recognition system and a probabilistic text retrieval system. This paper describes the configuration of the speech recognition and text retrieval systems, including segmentation and query expansion. We report our results for development tests using the TREC-8 queries, and for the TREC-9 evaluation
