Additional information

Corpus Description at the LDC Catalog


Czech Broadcast Conversation Speech was prepared by researchers at the University of West Bohemia, Pilsen, Czech Republic, and consists of 40 hours of speech recorded from Czech Radio 1 in 2003. Transcripts corresponding to the audio files in this corpus are provided in Czech Broadcast Conversation MDE Transcripts (LDC2009T20). Czech Broadcast Conversation Speech consists of 72 single channel recordings of Radioforum, a live talk program broadcast by Czech Radio 1 (CRo1) every weekday evening. Its format consists of invited guests (most often politicians) spontaneously answering topical questions posed by one or two interviewers. The number of interviewees in a single program varies from one to three, but typically, one interviewer and two interviewees appear in the program. The material includes passages of interactive dialogue, but longer stretches of monologue-like speech comprise the majority of the collected data. Radioforum also has an interactive segment where listeners call the studio and ask their own questions. That telephony speech was not transcribed in the current release.
