The main goal of the project is to improve the state-of-the-art quality and usability of the automatic speech recognition (ASR) technology for Swedish and Norwegian. In contrast to existing solutions, the newly developed technology will operate with high accuracy in all various applications including online broadcast monitoring, such as TV, internet podcasts, etc., transcription of speeches in parliaments and similar public institutions, as well as spoken archive mining. The incorporation of the developed technology into the existing multilingual speech processing solutions of NEWTON Technologies will open new market and cooperation opportunities for Newton in Northern Europe and, at the same time, bring new or better services based on ASR closer to people living in this part of Europe.
