In the Speechdat-E project five medium large telephone speech databases have been collected for Czech, Hungarian, Polish, Russian, and Slovak. The project was recently concluded. This paper reports briefly on the contents of the databases, elaborates on experiences gained from the data recordings and from the validation of the databases. The availability of the databases to the public is addressed, too.
