Microsoft’s speech recognition system is now as good as a human

Microsoft’s speech recognition has finally reached an error rate of only 5%, making it as accurate as the human ear. For over 20 years, testing has been done for checking the accuracy of transcribing recorded telephone conversations, both by humans and by machine.

By increasing the vocabulary from 30,000 to 165,000 words and making improvements on the acoustic language models they have reached this milestone.

There is still much work to do, since this breakthrough doesn’t cover more complex tasks, such as recognizing speech in loud environments or deciphering strong accents.
