This data set consists of 18 audio files recorded by LDC in January 2000 and February 2000 from Voice of America (VOA) satellite radio news broadcasts in Korean.
The recordings, captured from a dedicated satellite receiver, are stored as 16-bit PCM, 16-kHz, single-channel, in NIST SPHERE format. The duration of each recording is either 30 minutes or 60 minutes, depending on the VOA broadcast schedule. The date (YYYYMMDD), start-time and end-time (HHMM, Eastern Standard Time) for each recording are indicated in its file name. The sample data is not compressed.
Transcripts for these recordings are available as a separate corpus from the LDC: Korean Broadcast News Transcripts, LDC2006T14.
For an example of the data contained in this corpus, please listen to this audio sample (wav format).
