The goal of this project is to develop in parallel two distinct tools designed to help the Valaisan parliament in his process towards a parliament without paper. On one hand, an indexing and retrieval system that uses automatic speech recognition to index words pronounced by deputies during political debates. The end user will be able to query the index using a web interface and the browse a chosen deputy intervention. On the other side, an advanced automatic speech recognition transcription ystem that is able to identify spoken language and automatically transcribe French and German speech. This system will be robust to the different Valaisan and non-native speakers’ accents. Furthermore, a specific language model will be built to match the grammar and terms related to political speech.
