This paper presents initial studies of the performanceof a speech recogniser on children's speech when trained on children or adults. Aconnected-digits recogniser was used for this purpose. The individual digit accuracy among the children is correlated to some features ofthe child, such as age, gender, fundamental frequency and height. A strong correlation between age and accuracy was found. The accuracy was also found to be lower for child recognition than for adult recognition, even though the recognisers were trained on the correct class of speakers.
