Data Collection Projects
CSLU is working on several projects which are based on data collection.
We are looking for speakers to record their voices.
- Speech Data Collection ... project
Does your non-profit organization need some money? Here is an interesting fund-raising opportunity. The OGI School of Science & Engineering at OHSU is looking for a contact person to be a regional recruiter and find people within their region who will participate in a cellular phone speech data collection.
The purpose of this collection is to build better speech recognizing software. To achieve our goal we need to record samples of many different people talking on a cellular telephone. The callers must come from nine different regions of the country and be calling from several different surrounding environments. This is where we will need your assistance.
In return, we will pay $8 for every caller who completes about 10 minutes long recording session, to the organization. Recruiters can earn up to maximum of $5000 for their organization.
If you are interested in helping us, or would like more information about this collection, please send an e-mail to Seth Lewin at: firstname.lastname@example.org or you can read details on following website http://www.cslu.ogi.edu/project.
- Female speaker for voice recordings ..... project is completed
CSLU is looking for a female native speaker of American English to record her
voice for several research projects. The recordings vary from short nonsense
sentences for diphone database creation to longer childrens' stories to study
expressive intonation. For more information follow this link.
- Do you want to earn $5 in 10 minutes? ..... project
CSLU is looking for native speakers of American English to record their
voices saying 50 easy words. Speaker has to be at least 18 years old
to take a test. Session lasts about 10 minutes and takes place in Wallowa
building on OGI campus. Tests have started March 28th, 2001 and we are
still looking for speakers.
Please contact Stormy Iverson at (503) 748 - 1619 to schedule a session.
- SpeechDat-Car Database Collection ..... project
We were looking for speakers for our SpeechDat Car data collection.
The SpeechDat Car was used to collect speech-recognition information
for future use in automobiles that respond to voice commands. The project
was sponsored by the European SpeechDat organization and was headed
by Professor Peter Heeman. The project was completed March 31st, 2001.
