In this paper we present the first results of the CEC-sponsored project Sqale (Speech recognition Quality Assessment for Linguistic Engineering). In this project the recognition performance of four different systems in four different languages is assessed. The official word-error scores are presented, and the significant differences between the systems are indicated. Finally, the first results on the analysis of the various word error rates are given.
