The Donate Speech (Lahjoita puhetta) campaign kicks off 16.6.2020

The Language Bank of Finland is working together with the Finnish Broadcasting Company (Yle) and the Finnish State Development Company (Vake Oy) in the Donate Speech campaign (Lahjoita puhetta) launching on 16th June 2020. The aim of this project is to collect all kinds of Finnish speech from all kinds of people, from all over Finland and abroad.

By donating your speech, you can help researchers and companies to study language and to develop technology and services that can be used in Finnish more fluently in the future. All variants of spoken Finnish are welcome – including the speech of second-language Finnish learners. As long as you speak some Finnish and can understand the Finnish instructions in the app, you can donate!
