AsoSoft Speech Corpus

Speech Recognition for Kurdish

AsoSoft is the first company to work in the field of Speech Recognition for Kurdish language. We develop Speech Recognition, Speaker Recognition and Speech Command software and tools for Kurdish language through Artificial Intelligence and Signal Processing. Kurdish language speech data and its related resources like tags are of most important language resources which are required for NLP research and applications such as automatic speech recognition, speaker recognition, etc. In this project, speech data for Kurdish language (Central Kurdish) was designed and collected so that it could be used in automatic speech recognition, speaker recognition, phonology researches, dialect analysis, etc. So far, approximately 30 hours of speech has been recorded and transcribed in order to produce this corpus.
