The paper discusses an Amharic speaker independent continuous speech recognizer based on an HMM/ANN hybrid approach. The model was constructed at a context dependent phone part sub-word level with the help of the CSLU Toolkit. A promising result of 74.28% word and 39.70% sentence recognition rate was achieved. These are the best figures reported so far for speech recognition for the Amharic language.
