The NIST Scoring Toolkit (SCTK) is a collection of software tools designed to score benchmark test evaluations of Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) Systems.
It is kind of a pain to use, but certainly beats writing your own. Anyways, first step is downloading the latest version of the software. I had trouble finding an official “this is the latest version” website, but this one had old versions in addition to the “latest”, so I went with that.
Download latest version (at the time of this writing).
Unzip everything. I used archive manager and ended up with a folder called “sctk-2.4.10”. Enter that folder, you should see “bin”, “doc”, and “src” folders once you are inside of it. Open up a terminal inside the “sctk-2.4.10” folder.
[bull@localhost sctk-2.4.10]$ ls bin CHANGELOG DISCLAIMER doc INSTALL makefile README src
run the commands like the INSTALL file says
make config make all make check make install make doc
now navigate to the bin folder and run sclite
[bull@localhost sctk-2.4.10]$ cd bin [bull@localhost bin]$ ./sclite
