Re: Is the Spanish Voxforge dictionary compatible with Simon?

Hi Ralf,

>How is it possible to train a speech model when the character encoding is


The use of UTF-8 is really more to get rid of headaches that occur when trying to display international character sets on a web site. 

It does not really have much to do with acoustic model training, since Sphinx, Julius/HTK, ... use ASCII internally (which I assume is the reason why the SAMPA  computer readable phonetic alphabet was created).
