In this paper, the KALDI ASR engine adapted to Italian is described and the results obtained so far on some children speech ASR experiments are reported. We give a brief overview of KALDI, we describe in detail its DNN implementation, we introduce the acoustic model (AM) training procedure and we end describing some ASR experiments on Italian children speech together with the final test procedures.
