In the framework of the SUNDIAL Esprit System we are developing a man-machine dialogue system for interactive speech access to a remote data base. We describe the major system blocks, i. e. the acoustical front-end, the linguistic processor, the dialogue management and the message generation components, as well as their interplay. Finally we give an overview of the first speed and accuracy performance of the real time demonstrator.
