ANTS - Automatic News Transcription System

Functional Description: ANTS is a multipass system for transcribing audio data, and in particular radio or TV shows. The audio stream is first split into homogeneous segments that are decoded using the most adequate acoustic model with a large vocabulary continuous speech recognition engine (Julius, Sphinx or Kaldi). Further processing passes are run in order to apply unsupervised adaptation processes on the features and/or on the model parameters, or to use Speaker Adaptive Training based models. Latest version include DNN (Deep Neural Network) acoustic modeling.
