Abstract

We propose the use of an HMM-based phonetic aligner together with a speech-synthesis-based one to improve the accuracy of the global alignment system. We also present a phone duration-independent measure to evaluate the accuracy of the automatic annotation tools. In the second part of the paper we propose and evaluate some new confidence measures for phonetic annotation.
