Abstract

This paper introduces the multi-layer perceptron (MLP) as a new approach to isolated digit recognition. A comparison is made with hidden Markov modelling (HMM) techniques applied to the same data. The experimental results show that the performance of the multi-layer perceptron is comparable with that of hidden Markov modelling.
