ESCA Tutorial and Research Workshop on
Current status of main Japanese speech database projects will be summarized. The first one is the JEIDA Japanese Common Speech Data Corpus. The database is composed of 323 words and aimed mainly for use in design and evaluation of speech recognition algorithms. A large-scale Japanese speech database has been constructed by ATR. The database consists of word speech and continuous speech. Another effort to make a speech database for common use has been made in the Japanese National Project on Advanced Man-Machine Interface Through Spoken Language supported by a Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research from the Ministry of Education. The database consists of isolated utterances and sentence/discourse materials.
