Abstract

The "Red Temática en Tecnologías del Habla" (RTTH) has organized in the recent years a series of evaluations - so called ALBAYZIN evaluations - in some relevant speech processing topics devoted to encourage language research activities on the four official languages of Spain: Castilian, Catalan, Basque and Galician.

Similar to the well-known NIST Language Recognition Evaluation series, a Language Verification (LV) task was proposed in ALBAYZIN-08. The objective was to determinate if each one of the four official languages of Spain is spoken (or not) in a given test.

In this presentation, the INESC-ID L2F Language Verification systems submitted to the ALBAYZIN-08 evaluation will be presented together with the official competition results. Additionally, more recent research and developments, new results and future plans in the context of the Language Verfication topic will be presented.
