At LREC 2018 the German CLARIN-centre BAS will present a tutorial on speech processing tools:
"Creating, Managing and Analysing Speech Databases using BAS Services and Emu: A Hands-On Tutorial" by Christoph Draxler and Florian Schiel.
The creation of speech databases for spoken language research and development is a time-consuming and largely manual task. In this tutorial we present an optimized and tested workflow comprising the specification, recording, (automatic) transcription, (automatic) segmentation, and effective analysis of a corpus of spoken language. This tutorial will demonstrate how to use a) automatic tools, b) an effective integrated management system (EMU-SDMS) to organize and analyse speech data, and c) crowdsourcing wherever possible to speed up the process. It will also show how to apply established tools to under-resourced languages, thus facilitating access to these languages.
