Abstract: In this paper, we present our research on automatic speech recognition of surface electromyographic signals that are generated by the human articulatory muscles. With parallel recorded audible speech and electromyographic signals, experiments are conducted to show the anticipatory behavior of electromyographic signals with respect to speech signals. Additionally, we demonstrate how to develop phone-based speech recognizers with carefully designed electromyographic feature extraction methods. We show that articulatory feature (AF) classifiers can also benefit from the novel feature, which improve the F-score of the AF classifiers from 0.467 to 0.686. With a stream architecture, the AF classifiers are then integrated into the decoding framework. Overall, the word error rate improves from 86.8% to 29.9% on a 100 word vocabulary recognition task.
