In this work we present a telephone speech database for Basque, compliant with the guidelines of the Speechdat project. The database contains 1060 calls from the fixed telephone network. We first describe the main aspects of the database design. We also present the recognition results using the database and a set of procedures following the language independent reference recogniser commonly named Refrec.
