Hi Julin,

We do not have a ready to use, open source  speech to text tool for
Malayalam as of now.

But there are works going on in this domain. I am working on a Kaldi
<https://kaldi-asr.org/> based solution as an academic researcher. This repo
the development of a spoken digit recognizer for Malayalam. A past attempt
on Malayalam ASR using CMUSphinx by Sreenadh is available here

SMC has taken initiatives for collecting Malayalam speech corpus
<https://msc.smc.org.in> for training general purpose automatic speech
recognition (ASR) systems. The audio recorded so far is available here
A grapheme to phoneme converter, mlphon <https://gitlab.com/smc/mlphon>
that creates a phonetic lexicon (a dictionary of Malayalam words and its
pronunciation) needed for ASR training is another project.  Mlphon is
available as a Pypi <https://pypi.org/project/mlphon/> library.
