Over the past years, a great deal of work has been carried out on the validation of language resources, especially for speech databases. You will find below an overview of the documents that have been produced in relevant projects. We have split the surveys according to the type of data (speech, written). In each part, you will find a general document that describes ELRA’s general validation guidelines.

 

The following documents present a list of guidelines for validation checks to be carried out in order to ascertain a certain quality standard of Spoken Language Resources (SLR). The methods proposed have been chosen to provide a good balance between achievable quality standards and associated costs of the validation procedure.
