N2 - This paper describes a hybrid system for continuous speech recognition consisting of a neural network (NN) and a hidden Markov model (HMM). The system is based on a multilayer perceptron, which approximates the a-posteriori probability of a sequence of states, derived from semi-continuous hidden Markov models. The classification is based on a total score for each hybrid model, attained from a Viterbi search on the state probabilities. Due to the unintended discrimination between the states in each model, a new training algorithm for the hybrid neural networks is presented. The utilized error function approximates the misclassification rate of the hybrid system. The discriminance between the correct and the incorrect models is optimized during the training by the "Generalized Probabilistic Descent Algorithm';, resulting in a minimum classification error. No explicit target values for the neural net output nodes are used, as in the usual backpropagation algorithm with a quadratic error function. In basic experiments up to 56% recognition rate were achieved on a vowel classification task and up to 69 % on a consonant cluster classification task.
