I should have added, even just the minimal of a LCB library where I can 
write a script like:

on mouseUp
   ask file "Please select a WAV audio file to convert to text:" with 
type "WAV Audio FIle|wav|WAVE"
   if it is empty then exit mouseUp
   put sphinxTranscribe(it) into fld "Text"
end mouseUp

where sphinxTranscribe takes a WAV file and used PocketSphinx to return 
the transcribed text of the audio using the default settings.

Just that bit would be a boost t getting into further LCB development 
around pocketSphinx.
