Recommendations on reproducibility


We summarise the recommendations about reproducibility as follows:

  1. Information on every part of the recording chain has to be collected as carefully as possible, with characteristics of the speaker (cf. Section 8.3), transducers  (cf. Section 8.4), the recording environment  (cf. Section 8.5) and of the recording channel. 
  2. For choosing speech signals, try to apply reference signals from standardised Spoken Language corpora as far as possible.
  3. If there are no appropriate signals available, try to rely on standardised signal generation schemes and on reference channels  as far as possible.
  4. Check the electro-acoustic transducers  (microphones) for requirements and methods of calibration .
