The paper describes the construction of a database of Bulgarian speech which follows the protocols which were established by the ESPRIT SAM project and have become an accepted European standard for such work. A number of different transcription systems were attempted. Future work on other languages of Central and Eastern Europe will build on the foundations laid by the work reported here.
