This paper reports the current status of development of the Korean speech recognition platform (ECHOS). We implement new modules including ETSI feature extraction, backward search with trigram, and utterance verification. The ETSI feature extraction module is implemented by converting the public software to an object-oriented program. We show that trigram language modeling in the backward search pass reduces the word error rate from 23.5% to 22% on a large vocabulary continuous speech recognition task. We confirm the utterance verification module by examining word graphs with confidence score.
