To improve speech recognition performance, acoustic feature transformation based on discriminant analysis has been widely used. For the same purpose, discriminative training of HMMs has also been used. In this letter we investigate the effectiveness of these two techniques and their combination. We also investigate the robustness of matched and mismatched noise conditions between training and evaluation environments.
