Channel adaptation/Environment adaptation


As described above the system may incorporate an adaptation procedure that upgrades the recogniser  references in order to account better for current speaker characteristics. A similar procedure maybe set up in order to adapt the system features to the channel characteristics (a new microphone  or a telephone line) or to the environment (room acoustics, background noise ).

Requirements regarding this adaptation are similar to the ones described for the speaker adaptation  process.
