Email thread from bharathi:

Dear Ken


I am looking for something like adding words and their corresponding phonemes in the Voxforge dictionary. I tried a tool called Sam ( not microsoft sam). But the output of it was a little different from the way voxforge gives it. Also I looked into Legios(cmu software) but that needed inputs that I was nt aware how to generate. I am working on Windows cygwin and typically trying to recognize proper nouns (uncommon ones). Your input on this is greatly appreciated. Thanks 

Warm Regards

See here:

for an approach using Festival.

And here:

for a description of Sequitur which allows you to train a G2P engine on any pronunciation dictionary (like VoxForge's) and generate pronunciations on words not in the original pronunciation dictionary.
