measure, a new list has been created at the US website

b) Send a blank email to
 A message with further details will be automatically sent to you.

This list is free, but carries commercial advertising in a brief section
at the end of each message. However, until we can migrate to a
non-commercial server this will be adequate. The discussions can be
followed through email, and also through a Web browser at the Onelist

2) SALTMIL web page
- ------------------

The provisional SALTMIL website is currently at 

Please send any material you would like to add to the web pages to:
This could include details of your work, or a link to your web pages.

We hope very much that many colleagues will join in the discussions and
share their knowledge and experience with others who are also working in
the field of speech and language technology for minority languages.
