That's not the opinion of Nickolay S. from the Sphinx forums. He didn't think it was telephony ready but you implied something similar in a past email. Also, I got a similar impression with the pizza demo as it came with FS. Instead I tried Voxeo's Prophecy as per your recommendation and found it worked better. As I understand it, pocketsphinx and sphinx (3 & 4) are very good but need adapting and training for there various uses. 

So, why bother with LumenVox, Voxeo, Nuance, etc if one could get pocketsphinx working better since it's already integrated with FS?

Pocketsphinx works great for telephony.. just don't load 10000 word dictionary or grammar :P  the pizza demo uses it.. and it works great from every phone I have tested it with... Rome wasn't built in a day and we need more people that have the skills to really build a general purpose acoustical model that works in more situations.

Yup, or just get pocketsphinx "tuned" up for telephony and then no one will have to bother with ASR vendors.

I believe that some speech data from a good size sample for training is needed to make it more "speaker independent" and better suited for use with phone calls. I have a list of things from the Sphin
x forums that would be good to have for a telephony ready PocketSphinx. There is a "wsj" database but I don't know if that's would help??

Best. Mark.
