Corpus Information

In order to make the best use of VOICE as a research resource, users will need to know what kind of data VOICE seeks to represent, how the data in the corpus were collected and transcribed, and how they relate to each other.

The present section therefore offers a concise overview and relevant details concerning the VOICE project, the corpus design, sampling principles, and the transcription of data. The information provided (together with details concerning speaker information) is duplicated in the Corpus Header, which is part of VOICE Online.
