    Abstract

    Under an ARC Linkage Infrastructure, Equipment and
    Facilities (LIEF) grant, speech science and technology experts
    from across Australia have joined forces to organise the
    recording of audio-visual (AV) speech data from
    representative speakers of Australian English in all capital
    cities and some regional centres. The Big Australian Speech
    Corpus (the Big ASC) will provide a standard recording setup
    and a collaboratively-designed elicitation protocol to create a
    corpus of AV speech data incorporating annotations and
    metadata, accessible via a centralised storage facility. The Big
    ASC infrastructure will provide a significant boost to research
    in speech science and human communication in Australia.
