Re: reference needed (ASR)

The statement of the reviewer--that better phone recognition does not mean
better word recognition--is wrong.  It is possible that the reviewer could
support this statement with data from poorly conducted speech recognition
tests like, for example, those conducted with an inadequate number of speech
items, or when mean scores comprise scores of too few listeners.
