Feeling the urgent need of standardization for evaluation of devices in speech Technologies, european countries gathered their efforts to produce multilingual assessment procedures within the ESPRIT project SAM (Multilingual Speech Input/Output Assessment, Methodology and standardization). One of the numerous actions of the SAM project is the definition of a common working tool for all the tasks (whether for input or output Assessment) involved in the project. The project was initiated two years ago and this paper presents the main achievements for the task provision of workstation facilities and states the results of this experience in standardization for speech assessment procedures.
