Multilingual Access to Large spoken ArCHives (MALACH)

Supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation, MALACH is a joint research effort of the University of Maryland, the Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation, IBM, and Johns Hopkins University. The project's purpose is to dramatically improve access to large multilingual collections of recorded speech in oral history archives. Researchers are using Holocaust survivor testimonies collected by the Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation to test this technology.
