Halle, thanks for the great explanation, that helps a lot to understand what’s going on inside of OpenEars that I didn’t know.
I followed your suggestion and stripped all of my input of punctuation/special characters except for apostrophes. However, I am still getting crashes intermittently.
I’ve turned on OpenEars logging and have set verbosePocketSphinx = YES before the language model generation begins.
This is the log generated when there is no crash:JFK Innauguration – NO CRASH
This is the log generated when there is a crash:JFK Innauguration – CRASH
This is the dump of my input NSArray being bassed to the language model generator: Language model generator input text
I’d appreciate any further insight you can give me into what might be happening here.
