(i) A Hidden Markov Model (HMM) is a statistical Markov model where a system to be modeled is assumed as a Markov Process with unobserved or hidden states.

(ii) A strategy which make use of stochastic model of speech production is known as Hidden Markov Model (HMM). It is found to offer performance comparable to time warping at a function of the computational cost.

(iv) This model has been explored by many researchers. In the case of HMM, a model is capable of being in only in a finite number of difference states.

(v) HMM for speech recognition will have each state capable of generating finite number of possible outputs.

(vi) In generating a word, the system passes from one state to another. Each state emits an output until the entire word is out. Such a model is illustrated in the figure below. It is called the state transition diagram.

(vii) In the case of regular Markov Model, the state is directly visible to the observer and therefore the state transition probabilities are consider as only parameter.

State diagram for HMM

The transition matrix for figure is as follows:

$$ A = \begin{bmatrix} 0.3 & 0.5 & 0.1 & 0 & 0.1 \\ 0.2 & 0.4 & 0.4 & 0 & 0 \\ 0 & 0.1 & 0.3 & 0.5 & 0.1 \\ 0 & 0.1 & 0.1 & 0.5 & 0.3 \\ 0.2 & 0 & 0 & 0.2 & 0.6 \end{bmatrix} $$
