Abstract

In this paper, a spoken query system is demonstrated which can be used to access the latest agricultural commodity prices and weather information in Kannada language using mobile phone. The spoken query system consists of Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) models, Interactive Voice Response System (IVRS) call flow, Agricultural Marketing Network (AGMARKNET) and India Meteorological Department (IMD) databases. The ASR models are developed by using the Kaldi speech recognition toolkit. The task specific speech data is collected from the different dialect regions of Karnataka (a state in India speaks Kannada language) to develop ASR models. The web crawler is used to get the commodity price and weather information from AGMARKNET and IMD websites. The postgresql database management system is used to manage the crawled data. The 80 and 20% of validated speech data is used for system training and testing respectively. The accuracy and Word Error Rate (WER) of ASR models are highlighted and end to end spoken query system is developed for Kannada language.
