Hi everyone,

The company where I'm working now (Locus Dialogue, Montreal, Canada)
is collecting Japanese speech data for developing automatic speech
recognition system in Japanese.

Our web site is . On this page, you'll be asked
to register and then you'll receive the list of words which you'll
speak over the phone.

The telephone number from North America is 1-888-GO-LOCUS
and from Japan is 001-800-5629-5629. Both numbers
are toll-free (free-dial). The whole process of data collection will
take 7 to 8 minutes and you could win an exciting prize just by

A participant must be fluent in speaking Japanese but not necessarily
be a native Japanese speaker.

 	Thank you very much!
 	For any questions, comments: (Japanese/English)
