A continuous speech recognition system (called RAMSES) has been built based on the demisyllable as phonetic unit and tools from connected speech recognition. Speech is parameterized by band-pass lifted LPC-cepstra and demisyllables are represented by hidden Markov models (HMM). In this paper, the application of this system to recognize integer numbers from zero to one thousand is described. The paper contains a general overview of the system, an outline of the grammar inference, a description of the HMM training procedure and an assessment on the recognition performance in a speaker independent experiment.
