Task/Application adaptation

The system may need a particular tuning to suit a particular application or a class of applications. For example, generation of an adequate vocabulary  and adaptation to the channel  and/or background noise  may be needed. Such tuning can be achieved through a ``black box''  procedure by the application developer, or may demand data acquisition and modelling that involves specific know-how from the technology designer.
