Bavarian Archive for Speech Signals

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Bavarian Archive for Speech Signals (BAS) is a public scientific institution of the Ludwig Maximilians University in Munich founded in 1995 with the task of making recordings with spoken German in digital form for science , in particular linguistics and phonetic-acoustic language processing in the field of computer science to provide. These are audio and video corpora of spoken language. The BAS also develops software and offers a consulting service. 46 corpora are currently available (as of 2013). The archive is located at the Institute for Phonetics and Speech Processing at the Ludwig Maximilians University in Munich.

The BAS collects, among other things, the digital records resulting from projects of the Federal Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Technology and also exports these on the basis of reciprocity within the EU to partner institutions and to the Linguistic Data Consortium (LDC) in the USA . Accordingly, it imports digital data from these partners and makes them accessible in Germany. The BAS is also a center of the CLARIN-D infrastructure measure .

In addition to collecting, developing and exchanging these databases, one of the goals of the BAS is to develop a complete theory of the phonetics of German.

The BAS works together with the Leibniz data center in Garching near Munich.
