    We propose an improved maximum a posteriori (MAP) learning algorithm of continuous-density hidden Markov model (CDHMM) parameters for speaker adaptation. The algorithm is developed by sequentially combining three adaptation approaches. First, the clusters of speaker-independent HMM parameters are locally transformed through a group of transformation functions. Then, the transformed HMM parameters are globally smoothed via the MAP adaptation. Within the MAP adaptation, the parameters of unseen units in adaptation data are further adapted by employing the transfer vector interpolation scheme. Experiments show that the combined algorithm converges rapidly and outperforms those other adaptation methods.
