Sundanese language is one of the popular languages in Indonesia. Thus, research in Sundanese language becomes essential to be made. It is the reason this study was being made. The vital parts to get the high accuracy of recognition are feature extraction and classifier. The important goal of this study was to analyze the first one. Three types of feature extraction tested were Linear Predictive Coding (LPC), Mel Frequency Cepstral Coefficients (MFCC), and Human Factor Cepstral Coefficients (HFCC). The results of the three feature extraction became the input of the classifier. The study applied Hidden Markov Models as its classifier. However, before the classification was done, we need to do the quantization. In this study, it was based on clustering. Each result was compared against the number of clusters and hidden states used. The dataset came from four people who spoke digits from zero to nine as much as 60 times to do this experiments. Finally, it showed that all feature extraction produced the same performance for the corpus used.
