A non-native speech database is a speech database of non-native pronunciations of English. Such databases are essential for the ongoing development of multilingual automatic speech recognition systems, text to speech systems, pronunciation trainers or even fully featured second language learning systems. Because of the comparably small size of the databases, however, many of them are not available through the common distributors of speech databases. This leads to the fact that it is hard for researchers in speech recognition to keep an overview of what kind of databases have already been collected, and for what purposes there are still no collections.
This article is based on a paper from the ASRU speech conference. The paper wanted to provide a useful resource regarding the issue above. This online article is intended to provide a place where information about non-native speech databases can be updated continuously by the speech research community.
