Maybe for NON english speakers it doesn't do well but for my tests and  
needs it does excellent.  Sphinx isn't ready thats for sure.. but  
PocketSphinx does great.

I have PocketSphinx doing voice dial by name directory on very common  
and simple names.  If you adapt it it can get much better.  But have  
you called AT&T lately?  I have no idea what they use but OMG it  
sucks... you say "NO" it doesn't understand you.. you say your account  
number .. it doesn't understand you... you scream curse words at it  
and it will take you to an agent so they can get you to the right  
place.  Its aweful.  Pocketsphinx has performed better than that on my
