New Report Published: SSHOC Speech-to-text Workshop – Linking Social Survey and Linguistic Infrastructures through speech interviews

10 May 2021

Idea of collaboration between research infrastructures and disciplines is central to EOSC. An example of such collaboration within the SSHOC project was showcased in the recent Speech-to-text workshop. It presented the ongoing work undertaken by a partnership of two social science infrastructures (European Values Study and Generations and Gender Programme), and a linguistic infrastructure (CLARIN). Workshop was led by Judith Koops (Generations and Gender Programme), who provided an overview of the project. The workshop further included presentations by Joris Mulder (LISS panel), who demonstrated the tools used for collecting audio data through existing survey software in online interviews, and Henk van den Heuvel (CLARIN ERIC), who described tools which can be used for analysis of survey interviews. Giovanni Borghesan (European Values Study) was the moderator of the event.
