Meeting Recorder: Portable Speech Recognition
There are many other issues related to the design and use of the
Meeting Recorder. The following paragraphs outline a few.
Will People Object?
Will people object to being recorded? This has proved to be a real
problem with video records. Although audio records seem to be less of
a problem, issues of privacy must still be addressed. Simple "muting"
is probably insufficient, since many participants may have Meeting
Problems with Data Collection
The data collection phase is necessarily somewhat artificial. It
remains an open question on how the constraints of the data collection
phase will affect real meetings. Will speaking style change? Will
people be equally mobile?
Cross Domain Training
We cannot hope to cover the vocabulary and language models of all
possible meetings. What commonalities can be found? How much data will
we need to "cover" a new domain? Can we start with existing domain?
Do textual corpora help?
