CALLHOME German Transcripts are transcriptions of portions of German telephone speech from CALLHOME German Speech (LDC97S43). Specifically, this corpus consists of contiguous five or ten minute segments taken from 100 unscripted telephone conversations between native German speakers. The transcripts are time-stamped by speaker turn for alignment with the speech signal and are provided in standard orthography.


The documentation included with this release describes transcription conventions and format, along with speaker metadata (e.g., gender, channel quality).

LDC has also released CALLHOME German Lexicon (LDC97L18) which includes words from CALLHOME German Transcripts.
