Recognizing spoken acronyms


#1

Is there a way to get the ASR and NLU to work with spoken acronyms? I would like to make “AC” and “DC” be slot values but my tests of reading the ASR output shows it does not work well.


#2

Does it work if you spell it like “A C” and “D C” in Snips Console?


#3

It’s not getting that far - the ASR output is most likely something like “eighty” or “see” for AC and DC, respectively. I’m not sure there are user-configurable ways to make snips ASR better for acronyms, but thought I’d ask if others had any success in this area.


#4

Have you tried using synonyms for them? Like ‘A see’ and ‘Dee See’?


#5

I would be tempted to ry synonyms like wiz said. i have seen snips sometimes get confused by words that sound similar so its possible this might work.
