Florian Schiel, Christoph Draxler, Phil Hoole, Hans G. Tillmann

Bavarian Archive for Speech Signals, University of Munich, Germany

This paper gives an overview of recent developments at the Bavarian Archive for Speech Signals (BAS) located at the Department of Phonetics, University of Munich: Four new speech corpora have been added to the catalogue and will be briefly described. The BAS pronunciation dictionary PHONOLEX was extended by two new types of entries: empirically detected pronunciation variants and empirically collected word entries. Details will be given about the new Verbmobil II speech resources soon available via BAS and the European SpeechDat Car data collection. Apart from traditional speech resources we’ll also describe our WWWTranscribe tool for Web-based annotation and the first multi-modal speech resources produced at BAS.
