In spite of significant efforts and progress, automatic speech recognition (ASR) is not yet a tool that scholars can easily deploy in their research.
In our project we focus explicitly on those aspects that are crucial for scholars with respect to actually deploying the technology:
- Usability of the technology: working with an ASR engine and using its output for research
- Sustainability: the longer-term availability of the technology for scholars, with state-of-the-art performance, maintained, updated, and accessible.
