This paper reports on completed work carried out in the framework of an EU-funded project aimed at (a) developing a bilingual collection of cultural texts in Greek and Bulgarian, (b) creating a number of accompanying resources that will facilitate study of the primary texts across languages, and (c) integrating a system which aims to provide web-enabled and speech-enhanced access to digitized bilingual Cultural Heritage resources. This simple user interface, which incorporates advanced search mechanisms, also offers innovative accessibility for visually impaired Greek and Bulgarian users. The rationale behind the work (and the relative resource) was to promote the comparative study of the cultural heritage of the two countries.
