Title: ELRA Language Resources Catalogue Update 4/08
Submitter: Helene Mazo
Description: ELRA is happy to announce that 1 new Speech Resource, produced within the
Technolangue programme, is now available in its catalogue.

ELRA-S0272 MEDIA speech database for French

The MEDIA speech database for French was produced by ELDA within the French
national project MEDIA (Automatic evaluation of man-machine dialogue
systems), as part of the Technolangue programme funded by the French
Ministry of Research and New Technologies (MRNT). It contains 1,258
transcribed dialogues from 250 adult speakers. The method chosen for the
corpus construction process is that of a ‘Wizard of Oz’ (WoZ) system. This
consists of simulating a natural language man-machine dialogue. The
scenario was built in the domain of tourism and hotel reservation. The
semantic annotation of the corpus is available in this catalogue and
referenced ELRA-E0024 (MEDIA Evaluation Package).
