MissionIn the long-standing tradition of CSLU, we distribute corpora to our corporate members and academic institutions. Corporate members can use these corpora for research but also for creating commercial products such as generating acoustic models for speech recognition.
Developing a successful spoken language system typically requires vast amounts of data, and CSLU has established itself significantly as a collector and distributor of speech corpora. Recognizing that speech corpora are important resources for anyone conducting research in the area of voice processing, we have collected and transcribed telephone and cellular speech data in over 20 languages.
Our industrial affiliates are entitled to any of our previously released corpora, in addition to quarterly releases of all new corpora under development. Universities can obtain our corpora for a nominal shipping and handling fee. We usually have at least one data collection going at any given time.
