Recently I investigated possibility of using free acoustic model for Russian language. Previously I started using English VoxForge model. It was really fine. Adaptation or additional training of model were not required to get initial result. I expected something similar for Russian.
Noway. I made simplest test with JSGF grammars. Such way I avoid influence of language model which is more complex for Russian then for English. Accuracy of original Russian VoxForge acoustic model on separate words and simple phrases was bad.
Another available model for Sphinx4 is Zamir’s project ru4sphinx. It show the same low accuracy.
So if you are going to use Sphinx4 for recognizing Russian speech you should be ready to invest some time for adaptation existing acoustic model or building new one.
P.S. Good point is that VoxForge model is good basement to make adaptation to your speakers or your vocabulary. After simple adaptation I was able to get satisfactory result.
P.P.S. Do not be scared to build sphinxbase and sphinxtrain from trunk if you meet errors with compiled distribution. bw.exe gave fatal exception on my Win7. I was a little bit nervous building C++ code. Everything passed Ok from the beginning. No additional efforts was required.

I dont think your ideas are crazy. In fact what you suggest is something that actually would change the human race forever on this planet.

Mainly our use of oil as an energy source is holding everything back. Which in turn is also about control by the monetary system we currently have set up as a means for the human race to survive. This includes big banks, wall street, the stock market, and governments. And as we speak our middle class is becoming extinct due to the shift of the global market place as we compete for jobs in cheaper overseas markets. In essences we are becoming a third world country simple because big companies, banks and...

Turning to economic woes, he cited the slide in major stock indexes, the decline in U.S. gross domestic product and Washingtons bailout of banking giant Citigroup as evidence that American dominance of global markets has collapsed.
I was there recently and things are far from good, he said. Whats happened is the collapse of the American dream.
Panarin insisted he didnt wish for a U.S. collapse, but he predicted Russia and China would emerge from the economic turmoil stronger and said the two nations should work together, even to create a new currency to replace the U.S. dollar.
Asked for comment on how the Foreign Ministry views Panarins theories, a spokesman said all questions had to be submitted in writing and no answers were likely before Wednesday.
