Digital Archive of Scottish Gaelic

Island Voices are delighted to see some of our video recordings being added to the Digital Archive of Scottish Gaelic (DASG), hosted by Glasgow University. The spoken texts of Saoghal Thormoid, produced under the Soillse banner, were included in DASG shortly after their creation, but under a new initiative, thanks to Eilidh Cormack, all the Gaelic interviews of the original Guthan nan Eilean Series One have now been incorporated into the “Cluas ri Claisneachd” audio archive. This is the first time DASG have used video recordings in their archive. It’s meant quite a bit of extra work for them, as they have added same language subtitles to every video. So this offers another viewing and reading option to Island Voices viewers – you can now follow written transcripts directly on the video screen as an alternative to using our own Clilstore platform.

You can browse the Island Voices material here. So far, only Series One is currently available in DASG. However, agreement has been reached for all Series Two interviews to receive similar treatment in due course of time. We’re happy to contribute to this collaborative venture. Cumaibh cluas ri claisneachd!
