CMULM Chaplain: spoken dialog database
This data was collected as part of the ACT II Audio Voice Translation Guide System (Tongues) by Carnegie Mellon University and Lockheed Martin Systems Integration.

See TONGUES: Rapid Development of a Speech-to-Speech Translation System as presented at HLT2002.

As part of this work a number of role playing English-English dialogs we collected, with US Army Chaplains playing both sides. The recorded dat has been word level transcribed and was used for both speech recognition training and translated for use in EBMT translator.

This data is made avialble to the speech community for research purposes only.
