Automatic speech recognition (ASR) is a technology that allows a computer to identify the words uttered by a person using a
microphone or telephone. The processing required is divided into two parts: the signal processing front end and statistical framework of hidden
Markov model (HMM) at back-end for pattern classification. This paper presents a comparative study of different types of feature reduction
techniques in the context of Hindi language. Experimental results show a significant improvement in ASR performance by using extended MFPLP
(PLP derived from Mel scale filter bank) feature extraction technique at front-end with the help of Hetroscedastic linear discriminant
analysis (HLDA) projection scheme. All the investigations are based on the experiments conducted in typical field conditions using standard
close talking microphone.
