What's it all about?

WikiSpeech is a content management system for the web-based creation of speech databases for the development of spoken language technology and basic research. Its main features are support for the typical recording and project administration workflow, editing of the speech content and data download for the project administrator. WikiSpeech currently has been localized to English and German.

What do you have to do?

The project in which you participate. You will for example read simple texts: single words, commands, dates and times, phonetically balanced sentences as well as names and numbers. Besides you may answer a few questions and/or describe a few pictures.

What are we doing with your recordings?

The speech data will be transmitted to the IPS where they will be processed, documented and published. The sessions of most projects will be made anonymous. These projects use only anonymous personal properties such as your gender or age for publishing.
