Thanks to the support of the Welsh Government and S4C, a new project to research Welsh language speech recognition.
The aim of the GALLU project is to develop further speech recognition resources for Welsh.
As part of the WISPR project the Centre has worked on developing Welsh language text-to-speech software. The voice now works within Windows using MSAPI interface. The Centre will be developing the voice further in the future.
A small pilot project, funded by the Welsh Language Board, developed a voice-driven calculator as a way of demonstrating the potential of speech recognition in Welsh. The resulting software is a laboratory prototype rather than a consumer-ready application, but the documentation, software and data will be made available.
