Abstract: We propose a method for improving the unconstrained segmentation of speech into phoneme-like units using deep neural networks. The proposed approach is not dependent on acoustic models or forced alignment, but operates using the acoustic features directly. Previous solutions of this type were plagued by the tendency to hypothesise additional incorrect phoneme boundaries near the phoneme transitions. We show that the application of deep neural networks is able to reduce this over-segmentation substantially, and achieve improved segmentation accuracies. Furthermore, we find that generative pre-training offers an additional benefit.
