WikiSpeech 2.7.3

Welcome to IPS WikiSpeech!

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 full support for the typical recording, annotation and project administration workflow, easy editing of the speech content, plus a fully localizable user interface. For the creation of a new speech database, it is only necessary to open a new project within WikiSpeech, provide a link to any static project information pages and upload the prompt material to be presented to the speakers. Recordings and annotation are performed via the WWW in a platform independent manner on most modern Internet browsers. WikiSpeech currently has been localized to four languages: German, English, Romanian (partially) and Russian (partially).

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 will answer a few questions and describe a few pictures. One session comprises approx. 150 utterances and lasts about 30 minutes.

What are we doing with your recordings?

The recordings are performed in cooperation with your organization. The sessions will be made anonymous, so personal data is only collected for organisational purposes and will be destroyed after the recordings are done. The speech data will be transmitted to the IPS where they will be processed , documented and published.
