The purpose of ASR-Builder is to provide an easy-to-use interface to the HTK toolkit, that allows users to build ASR systems. ASR-Builder provides a framework that performs house-keeping tasks when using HTK, as well as basic training, testing and recognition scripts. Although ASR-Builder is meant to be simple to use, it is flexible and allows the full power of HTK to be used.

The project is run by the Meraka Institute, CSIR, South Africa, and is funded by the Department of Arts and Culture, South Africa
