We propose a continuous speech recognition algorithm utilizing island-driven A* search. Conventional left-to-right A* search is probable to lose the optimal solution from a finite stack if some obscurities appear at the start of an input speech. Proposed island-driven A* search proceeds searching forward and backward from the clearest part of an input speech, and thus can avoid to lose the optimal solution from a finite stack.
