Let us summarise the introduction by the following recommendations:
- Try to follow one of two strategies: consider either all possible
task-specific recording conditions (``real-life speech'') or as few deviations
from ``standard'' high-quality conditions as possible
in order to gather speech signals
that are as clean as possible (``flawless speech'' ). Both strategies can prove
to be ``optimal'' for specific tasks, but a compromise will not.
- In case of flawless speech : artificial recording conditions should not
affect the speaker's behaviour.
- In case of real-life speech: keep a record of all recording
conditions, including the task-specific ones.
- Consider the relevant recording and signal processing standards
