Aligning audio book with corresponding ebook

I am looking for a way to do good quality forced alignment, considering OOV words.

The idea is to be able to make synchronous playback of an ebook, that can contain words not part of the dictionary of the SR engine.

I had a look at CMU Sphinx 4 which provides alignment functionality, but apparently OOV words are not supported.

Any suggestions here? If possible Java-based.

Thanks a lot in advance,

Sébastien Druon

As you know what words you want to align, the easiest solution is to generate pronunciations automatically for any words you don't already have pronuciations for, e.g.
