Mining a Year of Speech


This project focuses on large scale data analysis of audio -- specifically the spoken word.  This project will create tools to enable rapid and flexible access to over 9,000 hours of spoken audio files, containing a wide variety of speech, drawn from some of the leading British and American spoken word corpora, allowing for new kinds of linguistic analysis.
