Baum-Welch is now available on conda-forge. Linux (x86) and Mac OS X users who already have conda can install the library and all dependencies using the following command: `conda install -c conda-forge baumwelch`

.

*OpenGrm* *Baum-Welch* is a C++ library (including associated binaries) which allows the user to estimate the parameters of a discrete hidden Markov model (HMM)
using the Baum-Welch algorithm (a special case of the expectation maximization meta-algorithm). It uses OpenFst library
finite-state transducers (FSTs) and FST archives (FARs) as inputs and outputs.
