This study proposes a new training method for hidden Markov model with separate vector quantization (SVQ-HMM) in speech recognition. The proposed method uses the correlation of two different kinds of features: cepstrum and delta-cepstrum. The correlation is used to decrease the number of reestimation for two features thus the total computation time for training models decreases. The proposed method is applied to Japanese language isolated dgit recognition.
