Description:The European Cultural Heritage Online (ECHO) corpus is a multilingual corpus containing video material from three SLssign languages: Sign Language of the Netherlands, British Sign Language and Swedish Sign Language. Eight signers were recorded for 1.5 hours following the same tasks in each language. For Sign Language of the Netherlands and British Sign Language sign language poetry was added to the corpus. Additionally annotated segments of the Gehörlos So! corpus of German Sign Language (Heßmann, 2001) were added to the corpus. The Echo project was a 18-month EU funded project dedicated to bring Essential Cultural Heritage online. The ECHO corpus was built from 2003–2004 by the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, Radboud University and University of Lund. Filming took place in a studio with one or two signers at the same time. The signers were sitting or standing and depending on the task, recorded separately or closely next to each other. A single-coloured background was used.
