The vocabulary contains nearly 5,500 phonetic variants of 2,900 distinct words; it is specific to the tourist reservation and information domain. The trigram language model that we used for our experimentation was computed using an interpolation between two LMs trained on task specific documents and on more general documents gathered from the Internet, as described in (Vaufreydaz et al.

For instance, it is used in interactive voice response (IVR) systems to accomplish complex transactions that are difficult for touch tone based interaction to handle if a complicated application menu structure is to be avoided.

Retransmission is not deployed for DSR since speech interaction is considered a real time application so that Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP) is used. Retransmission mechanism further relies on duplex communication. Instead, server-side EC can be used in combination with BEC. The other type of techniques, known as forward error correction (FEC), aims at not only detecting errors but also recovering the message from errors without referring back to the client. For instance, Boulis et al. (2002) applied Reed-Solomon codes to DSR to cope with packet erasure.
