A duration modeling scheme and a speaking rate compensation technique are presented for the HMM based connected digit recognizer. The proposed duration modeling technique uses a cumulative duration probability. The cumulative duration probability also can be used to obtain the duration bounds for the bounded duration modeling. One of the advantages of proposed technique is that the cumulative duration probability can be applied directly to the Viterbi decoding procedure without additional postprocessing. Therefore, it rules the state and word transition at each frame. To alleviate the problems due to fast or slow speech, a modification to the bounded duration modeling which accounts for speaking rate is described. The experimental results on Korean connected digit recognition show the effectiveness of the proposed duration modeling scheme and the speaking rate compensation technique.
