Description:

WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Do you know anyone involved in non-profit organizations in different
parts of the United States that need money? Here is an interesting
fund-raising opportunity for them. They would arrange to have their
members, and anyone else they know in their geographic region,
participate in a cellular phone speech data collection. Using their
cell phones, participants will call out toll free number and read
items from prompt sheets to our voice recording system. In return, we
will donate $5 to their organization for every caller who completes
the 10 to 15 minutes session, for a total of up to $3350.

The purpose of this collection is to build better speech recognizing
software. To achieve our goal we need to record samples of many
different people talking on a cellular telephone. The age and gender
of the callers must be balanced and they need to call from different
noise environments.
