About us

The Laboratory of Language Technology focuses on the following topics:

  • Speech recognition
  • Speaker recognition
  • Language and accent identification
  • Speech corpora
  • Phonetics (Estonian prosody and sound system, L2 speech)
  • Various subtopics in natural language processing


In addition, we also work on making speech technology more accessible to the general public, by creating end-user oriented speech recognition applications and packaging speech recognition related software components in more accessible form. Our main focus is on Estonian speech recognition, but most of the components are not specific to Estonian. We are firm supporters of open source.

We are looking for PhD students!

The lab was formerly part of the Institute of Cybernetics. Our old web pages are available here.
