ELRA is happy to announce that 1 new Speech Desktop/Microphone Resource is now available in its catalogue. * ELRA-S0347 GlobalPhone Hausa *The GlobalPhone Hausa corpus contains 7,895 utterances spoken by 33 male and 69 female speakers in the age range of 16 to 60 years.

The speech data contains a variety of accents: Maroua, Douala, Yaoundé, Bafoussam, Ngaoundéré, and Nigeria. For more information, see: http://catalog.elra.info/product_info.php?products_id=1177

The GlobalPhone corpus developed in collaboration with the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) was designed to provide read speech data for the development and evaluation of large continuous speech recognition systems in the most widespread languages of the world, and to provide a uniform, multilingual speech and text database for language independent and language adaptive speech recognition as well as for language identification tasks.
