A pilot set of recordings will be made at each site consisting of 1 speaker speaking 10% of all the sentence and number material and all CVCs. This pilot material from each site will be transferred using floppy discs, one each for calibration, sentences, CVCs and numbers. The material will consist of the speech files together with corpus description files, labelling files, speaker file, text files and conditions file.
The floppy discs will be sent to NPL where the quality and consistency will be assessed by a panel of ``experts''. Modifications and clarifications to this set of protocols may then be made.
