Pobal na Gaeilge: this activity is for everyone who for any reason is interested in the Irish language and interested in exploring what modern speech technology can contribute.

We are particularly interested in people who might be willing to contribute to our research by doing a short (15 minute) recording in Irish (all dialects, all levels, all age-groups welcome)
