We present recent developments in the collection of phonetic-linguistic web services provided by the Bavarian Archive of Speech Signals (BAS). The BAS back end web services are REST based and can be easily integrated into user applications. Several public web interfaces have been implemented that utilize these back end services to provide easy-to-use access to high-end linguistic and phonetic processing (front end services). In this show&tell we demonstrate the latest front end services of BAS: automatic phonetic segmentation & labelling using the MAUS technique (14 languages), text-to-phoneme conversion (13 languages), automatic phonetic transcription (6 languages), phonetic syllabification (13 languages), and speech synthesis.
