[hts-users:04520] Re: too few observation sequences

First let's increase HInit's trace level (-T) and output more fine-grain logs.  It will tell you more details why it failed.

One possibility is that HInit internally failed to run Viterbi alignment over all 'dw' segments.

Hi hts-users,

We are training a new voice and running into this error:

We understand that this error may happen because of too few examples of the phoneme, or because they don't each contain enough frames, but we have more than 3 examples of this phoneme in our data (the minimum specified in the HTK book) and they all contain more than 5 frames (which sounds like the minimum required according to other posts on this list) -- is there any other reason why this error may occur?
