In this paper we report the results of a Dutch speech recognition system evaluation held in 2008. The evaluation contained material in two domains: Broadcast News (BN) and Conversational Telephone Speech (CTS) and in two main accent regions (Flemish and Dutch). In total 7 sites submitted recognition results to the evaluation, totalling 58 different submissions in the various conditions. Best performances ranged from 15.9% word error rate for BN, Flemish to 46.1% for CTS, Flemish. This evaluation is the first of its kind for the Dutch language.
