Development of New Telephone Speech Databases for French: the NEOLOGOS Project

The NEOLOGOS project is a speech databases creation project for the French language, resulting from a collaboration between French universities and industrial companies, and supported by the French Ministry for Research. The goal of NEOLOGOS is to create new kinds of speech databases: firstly, a 1000 speakers telephone database of children?s voices, called PAIDIALOGOS, following the SpeechDat guidelines with some adaptations to the context of children speakers; secondly, a 200 speakers telephone database of adult voices, called IDIOLOGOS, with a new special design to provide adequate data for very fast adaptation techniques and for ASR systems making use of speakers characteristics
