PELCRA Spoken Offline Corpora
PELCRA Spoken Offline Corpora of conversational Polish which were collected as part of the CLARIN-PL project are available via links in the table below.
Each corpus consists of speech recordings (in WAV format) and word-by-word transcriptions, which also include some non-speech events. The transcriptions (in EAF format) are complemented with words and phones annotations ( _out.eaf files), and, if available, with video content (MP4 format) and PDF transcripts.
Metadata are provided in XML files listing information about the recordings (titles, topics, dates, and URLs), media available (audio, video, pdf), and annotation details (file, date, annotator, place, duration, with additional information about the speakers whenever such data was available). A Document Type Definition specifying the structure of the elements and attributes of an XML document is included in each of the corpora. SQLite database with all the corpora metadata is also available for download.
Most of these offline corpora are indexed in Spokes and Spokes2
All PELCRA spoken offline corpora have altogether about 1 220 400 words.
