We use a user simulation to connect our speech synthesis to a real, state-of-the-art automatic speech recognition (ASR) component deployed in a working commercial SDS via a standard telephone line. In a series of experiments, we compare human-machine dialogs and their recognition scores with simulated dialogs using synthesis. Our results show that a good text-to-speech synthesis configuration rivals human speech both in recognition scores as well as variability. This makes the speech interface in user simulation quite attractive.</dcterms:abstract> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/45"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:contributor>Scheffler, Tatjana</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Scheffler, Tatjana</dc:creator> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Roller, Roland</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Reithinger, Norbert</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>Natural vs. Synthesized Speech in Spoken Dialog Systems Research : Comparing the Performance of Recognition Results</dcterms:title> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2014-09-30T13:20:47Z</dcterms:available> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2014-09-30T13:20:47Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Kretzschmar, Florian</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/29021"/> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://rightsstatements.org/page/InC/1.0/"/> <dc:creator>Möller, Sebastian</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Roller, Roland</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/45"/> <dc:contributor>Reithinger, Norbert</dc:contributor> <dcterms:issued>2012</dcterms:issued> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
