Abstract:     Apparatus for correcting speech including one or more words of a predetermined language comprises candidate word correlating means for correlating each of one or more speech data items of words to one or more candidate words obtained by recognizing said speech data items indicating the words. Analogous word correlating means correlates each of the candidate words correlated to the speech data items to null or more analogous words which may correspond to a pronunciation of each of the candidate words. The speech correcting apparatus further comprises pronunciation correcting data output means for outputting pronunciation correcting data corresponding to the analogous word indicated by the speech data item and correcting the pronunciation of the word indicated by the speech data item when the word indicated by the speech data item matches the analogous word correlated to each of the candidate words which are correlated to the speech data item.

First Claim:
Show all 12 claims
What is claimed is:     1. A speech correcting apparatus for correcting speech including one or more words of a predetermined language, the apparatus comprising:
  • candidate word correlating means for correlating each of one or more speech data items of words to one or more candidate words obtained by recognizing said speech data items indicating the words,
  • analogous word correlating means for correlating each of said candidate words correlated to the speech data items to null or more analogous words which may correspond to a pronunciation of each of said candidate words, and
  • pronunciation correcting data output means for outputting pronunciation correcting data corresponding to the same analogous word indicated by said speech data item and correcting a pronunciation of the word indicated by said speech data item when the word indicated by said speech data item matches said analogous word correlated to each of said candidate words which are correlated to said speech data item.
