The course includes mini-project style assignments. Each one of you is
expected to work on these assignments and turn in your results
individually. The assignments are worth 25% of your overall course
grade. The goal of the assignments is to introduce the various
components that underlie a speech recognition system, and several
useful tools that can help you build them.
Your first assignment is to build a simple phone recognizer using HTK. For this assignment, you need to first download HTK from here
and install it on your computer.
Then you can get some helps from the biginning parts of the HTK book or from this tutorial
