Abstract : The Technology Review for Speech Recognition for Language Sustainment was an effort of the Special Operations Research, Development and Acquisition Center, the U.S. Army Research Institute and the Advanced Research Projects Agency in cooperation with the U.S. Army Special Operations Command Language Office. The review examined the state-of-the-art in continuous speech recognition (CSR) as it applies to foreign language training, sustainment, and enhancement for the Special Operations Forces (SOF). The review addressed short-term, intermediate, and long-term goals for applying technology to SOF language training/sustainment needs. Presenters included developers of CSR systems with demonstrated interest in language education. ranging from industry to academia. In addition, participants discussed speech translation technology and its links to language training technologies. While the focus of the review was SOF, representatives of other military and government user groups also attended. It was held on August 2 and 3 1995, in Fayetteville, NC.
