West Point Korean Speech is a database of digital recordings of spoken Korean. Corpus design and data collection were carried out by staff and faculty of the Department of Foreign Languages (DFL) and Center for Technology Enhanced Language Learning (CTELL), located at the United States Military Academy (USMA), West Point, New York. The corpus was designed to develop speech recognition systems that would be used by the US government for speech-recognition enhanced language learning courseware. The prompt scripts were created from 20,000 distinct sentences, along with a subset of prompts designed to elicit free response answers to questions for use in domain-specific speech to speech translation systems. Each speaker attempted to record 100 utterances. Three data collection scripts were designed by Ms. Jennifer Son, a native speaker of Korean, under contract with the Department of Foreign Languages.
