EUROM_1 European Languages Speech Database
One of the major tasks of the working group "Enabling Technology and Research" in the ESPRIT-project 2589 (SAM) was the production of standard European speech databases. Within the SAM project, standard recording protocols and several tools for recording and annotion of speech databases were developed. The whole EUROM.1 database covers eight European languages (Danish, Dutch, British English, French, German, Italian, Norwegian and Swedish). The Italian database is available separately, the other languages are described below.
