The BULB project aims at supporting the documentation of unwritten languages with the help of automatic speech and language processing, in particular automatic speech recognition (ASR) and machine translation (MT). We will address the documentation of three mostly unwritten African languages of the Bantu family (Basaa, Myene and Embosi).
