In this paper our goal is to find the phonetic transcription of spoken utterances. We present a method which uses information extracted directly from the word-based search to compute the most likely phoneme sequence. Utterances are transcribed during recognition, so that the phonetic representation of the input is available after the search. Using this method, the computational cost of the word-based search remains almost unaltered, and the phonetic transcription is obtained almost for free.
