EUROSPEECH 2003 - INTERSPEECH 2003
A new database project has been launched in Estonia last year. It aims the collection of telephone speech from a large number of speakers for speech and speaker recognition purposes. Up to 2000 speakers are expected to participate in recordings. SpeechDat databases, especially Finnish SpeechDat, have been chosen as a prototype for the Estonian database. It means that principles of corpus design, file formats, recording and labelling methods implemented by the SpeechDat consortium will be followed as closely as possible. The paper is a progress report of the project.
