Children Are Special
- Children have fundamentally different speech anatomy than adults.
- Early years are the most important time for children, it’s when they are interacting with their environment and learning from every interaction, it is essential that they be heard and understood properly.
- Children’s overall speaking rate is slower compared to adults and they have unevenness in speech spontaneity, rate of speaking, and vocal effort.
- Children are more likely to use “incorrect pronunciations, ungrammatical phrases, and imaginative words.”
- Children have a hard time communicating with smart devices and educational apps because they simply don’t understand them.
Automatic Speech Recognition Problem in Children
The recognition of children’s speech through Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) is substantially more difficult for children’s speech than for adults’.
It has been described that error rates in word recognition can be up to 100% worse for children’s speech when compared with adults’ speech.
Using acoustic models trained on speeches from adults results in very high error rates when applied to children data.
Current approaches to ASR for children’s speech fail to take into account the chronological sequence of stages at which children acquire the ability to produce particular speech sounds accurately.
