5th International Conference on Spoken Language Processing
With the globalisation and evolving technology of voice-driven man-machine interfaces there is a growing demand for acquisition of spoken language resources in a number of speaker populations being representative for a number of languages and countries. In this paper experience from work within a large consortium in creating large multilingual speech databases for tele-services are reported. In particular the methods and experiences in recruiting speakers for such recordings are reported across a number of participating partners. The reporting is from the SpeechDat project (http://speechdat.phonetik.uni-muenchen.de).
