This site provides a range of information on speech technology, including speech synthesis, speech recognition, speech coding, and related material



The Linguistic Data Consortium supports language-related education, research and technology development by creating and sharing linguistic resources: data, tools and standards.

The Speech Recognition Virtual Kitchen

The Speech Recognition Virtual Kitchen aims to promote sharing of research techniques, foster innovative experimentation, and provide solid reference systems as a tool for education, research, and evaluation with a focus on speech and language research. The core of the research infrastructure is the use of virtual machines (VMs) that provide a consistent environment for experimentation. We liken the virtual machines to a “kitchen” because they provide the infrastructure into which one can install “appliances” (e.g., speech recognition toolkits), “recipes” (scripts for creating state-of-the art systems), and “ingredients” (language data).


The Human Language Technologies area of NIST coordinates resources in the measurement and evaluation of speech recognition, speaker recognition, spoken language understanding, information search, retrieval, and filtering, document understanding, summarization, interactive speech interfaces. The website contains descriptions of standard benchmark and evaluation activities in the speech community, as well as a set of tools for manipulating various types of speech data.


This is an extensive website describing the activities of the International Speech Communication Association. ISCA's stated goal is "to promote Speech Communication Science and Technology, both in the industrial and Academic areas", covering all the aspects of Speech Communication (Acoustics, Phonetics, Phonology, Linguistics, Natural Language Processing, Artificial Intelligence, Cognitive Science, Signal Processing, Pattern Recognition, etc.).
