About Julius
=============
"Julius" is an open-source high-performance large vocabulary
continuous speech recognition (LVCSR) decoder software for
speech-related researchers and developers. Based on word N-gram and
triphone context-dependent HMM, it can perform almost real-time
decoding on most current PCs with small amount of memory.
It also has high versatility. The acoustic models and language models
are plug-gable, and you can build various types of speech recognition
system by building your own models and modules to be suitable for your
task. It also adopts standard formats to cope with other toolkit such
as HTK, CMU-Cam SLM toolkit, etc.
The core engine is implemented as embeddable library, to aim to offer
speech recognition capability to various applications. The recent
version supports plug-in capability so that the engine can be extended
by user.
The main platform is Linux and other Unix workstations, and also works
on Windows (SAPI/console). Julius is distributed with open license
together with source codes.
