About Eng-htk-users
English (UK)

Before asking a question on a particular topic on the list

  1. Subscribe to the list, you cannot post unless you do.
  2. Read the documentation in the HTK Book (at least twice)
    and think about it! The HTK Book contains information on how to use
    HTK as well as more general information on speech recognition.
    However there are also several tutorial books on speech recognition
    that should be used as well.
  3. Read the FAQ.
  4. Search the mailing list archives
  5. In the HTK Tutorial and the RM recipe it is often necessary to
    read ahead. These are meant to be taken as examples and you should
    think about what each step is trying to achieve: HTK is aimed at
    people who want to learn about the details of HMMs and perform related
  6. If it is a question about Unix, or Windows ask your local friends,
    colleagues or support staff. Or buy a book.
  7. Remember that your message will be read by many hundreds of people.
  8. Don't ask the same question that you have asked recently: if it
    hasn't had a reply it doesn't mean that it hasn't been read.

If you do ask a question

  1. Make sure your mailer is setup properly: always send mail in plain
    ASCII text only
    (not html). If you are not sure how to do this,
    please ask your colleagues or support staff. If you send email
    containing html markup, it will not be accepted and you will be asked
    to repost it.
  2. If you have a problem with the code give the full output from the
    relevant command invoked with (at least) the -A -D and -V options.
    Include relevant tracing information (e.g. -T 1) so that problems can
    be understood.
  3. If you have found a bug, follow href="http://htk.eng.cam.ac.uk/develop/report_bug.shtml">the bug
    reporting procedure
  4. Note that many people on the list try to help but you may not
    always get a quick (or indeed any) response. Remember that HTK is
    not a commercial product.
