Extending the EMU Speech Database Management System: Cloud Hosting, Team Collaboration, Automatic Revision Control

Markus Jochim


In this paper, we introduce a new component of the EMU Speech Database Management System [1, 2] to improve the team workflow of handling production data (both acoustic and physiological) in phonetics and the speech sciences. It is named emuDB Manager, and it facilitates the coordination of team efforts, possibly distributed over several nations, by introducing automatic revision control (based on Git), cloud hosting (in private clouds provided by the researchers themselves or a third party), by keeping track of which parts of the database have already been edited (and by whom), and by centrally collecting and making searchable the notes made during the edit process.
