Some words about the creation of this speech model:

1. Get Ralf’s Norwegian Bokmål dictionary 0.1.1.
2. Create a Simon scenario with the name “Norwegian”.
3. Clear the shadow vocabulary which contains the shadow dictionary from my previous scenario.
4. Import Ralf's Norwegian Bokmål dictionary as shadow dictionary.
5. Train 10 Norwegian words. Simon is asking:

Your vocabulary does not define all words used in this text. These words are missing:
fiskehank, fiskehode, gangvei, gante, hodestup, kampvåpna, kyte, mien, sjako, sylfe

Do you want to add them now?

Press the Yes button.

6. Add as grammar the word “Unknown”. Add the dictation plugin. Actions > Synchronize. Actions > Activate. Let’s dictate a few words:

fiskehank kyte gangvei kyte sjako mien sjako sylfe

7. Export the Norwegian scenario. Export Norwegian base model.

Ralf’s Norwegian Bokmål dictionary 0.1.1

Sunday, May 23rd, 2010

How I improve Ralf's Norwegian Bokmål dictionary:

1. Version 0.1 contains eSpeak characters.

2. Language code is no. Or I should better use nb – Bokmål? I think that I will use no – it is easier at the moment (because espeak2ipa.xsl doesn’t contain a specific entry for nb. Only no is supported.

3. Convert <phoneme> elements:

$ cat '/media/5f6432a3-9a68-45ee-b4b7-11f3b009825a/home/am3msi/Documents/200911/norwegian/norwegian-dictionary.xml.bz2' | bunzip2 -k | saxonb-xslt -ext:on -s:- -xsl:'/home/ubuntu/Documents/201005/dict-phonemes-espeak2ipa/espeak2ipa.xsl'

4. Download Ralf's Norwegian Bokmål dictionary with 322043 words, and import it into simon.
