ALFFA_PUBLIC

(prepared by Laurent Besacier and Elodie Gauthier - Laurent.Besacier@imag.fr - Elodie.Gauthier@imag.fr)

This repository is a result of the ALFFA project http://alffa.imag.fr

We distribute READY-to-use (or READY-to-train) KALDI ASR systems and (when possible) associated corpora....

A summary of these resources and ASR performances, as well as a description of the ALFFA project has been published in the following paper:

Collecting Resources in Sub-Saharan African Languages for Automatic Speech Recognition: a Case Study of Wolof. Elodie Gauthier, Laurent Besacier, Sylvie Voisin, Michael Melese and Uriel Pascal Elingui. To appear at LREC 2016

So far, the ASR directory contains Kaldi recipes for 4 languages : Amharic, Swahili, Hausa and Wolof.
