What is a BLARK?
BLARK is an acronym for "Basic Language Resource Kit." In a BLARK you can find all necessary resources to develop different language technology tools (e.g. speech recognition) for a specific language. Our BLARK is especially made to produce ASR (Automatic Speech Recognition), but the resources it contains can also be used for e.g. speech synthesis, lexicography and linguistic research.
