This presentation will describe a project to create Yiddish speech and language resources to be able to generate technologies to enable automatic transcription and annotation of spoken Yiddish audio and video recordings, in particular the AHYEM corpus of recorded interviews with Yiddish speakers in Eastern Europe. This project aims at the developement of resources and technologies that can make the entire AHYEM corpus and other Yiddish resources more accessible to not only the community of Yiddish speakers or linguists, but also historians and experts from other disciplines and general public.
