ELRA is happy to announce that 4 new Speech Resources are now available in
its catalogue.

ELRA-S0157 NetDC Arabic BNSC (Broadcast News Speech Corpus)

The NetDC Arabic BNSC (Broadcast News Speech Corpus) is a corpus developed

(Linguistic Data Consortium), which has produced a similar corpus from the
news broadcasted by Voice of America Arabic in the United States. The
database contains ca. 22.5 hours of broadcast news speech recorded from
Radio Orient (France) during a 3-month period.
