This paper describes the BUT Jilebi teams speech recognition systems created for the 2018 low resource speech recognition challenge for Indian languages. We investigate modifications of multilingual time-delay neural network (TDNN) architectures with transfer learning and compare them to bi-directional residual memory networks (BRMN) and bi-directional LSTM. Our best submission based on system combination achieved word error rates of 13.92% (Tamil), 14.71% (Telugu) and 14.06% (Gujarati). We present the details of submitted systems and also the post-evaluation analysis done for lexicon discovery using unsupervised word segmentation.
