The paper describes a system, in JAVA, for written and visual scenario generation to collect speech corpora in the framework of a Tourism Information System. Methods and experimental results are also presented for evaluating the degree of understanding of the proposed scenarios. The corpus generated from visual scenarios appears to be much richer than the one generated from textual descriptions.
