The Ph@ttSessionz project will create a database of 1000 adolescent German speakers. The project employs a novel approach to collecting speech data: recordings are being performed via the WWW in more than 35 schools in Germany, and the data is immediately transferred to the BAS server in Munich. Using this approach, geographically distributed recordings in high bandwidth quality can be performed efficiently and reliably. The paper presents the infrastructure developed at BAS for WWW-based speech recordings, it discusses the strategies employed to get schools to participate in the project, and it presents preliminary analyses of the speech database.
