The 2nd CHiME challenge is a difficult two-microphone speech recognition task with non-stationary interference. We investigate the effectiveness of state-of-the-art ASR techniques such as discriminative training, various feature transformations and deep neural networks for reverberated and noisy speech recognition, combined with a simple noise suppression method relying on prior-based binary masking with estimated angle of arrival. Moreover, we propose an augmented discriminative feature transformation that can introduce arbitrary features to a discriminative feature transform, an efficient combination method of discriminative language modeling and minimum Bayes risk decoding in an ASR post-processing stage. These techniques are effective for middle-vocabulary sub-task (Track 2) of CHiME challenge. Our performance is the best among participants.
