This paper reports on ongoing research into developing large-vocabulary continuous speech recognition (LVCSR) for the Welsh language. We address data design issues and the method for data collection using a purposely designed application for mobile devices. We also discuss the application of the data including the design and collection of a small speech corpus to cov- er the commands used to control a robotic arm in Welsh on a Raspberry Pi computer the li- censing of the project and our hopes for the application of the project resources to other lan- guages.
