New OTA corpus: VOICE

VOICE logoThe OTA is proud to announce the latest addition to the archive: the Vienna-Oxford Corpus of International English (VOICE).

The corpus consists of transcriptions of over 110 hours of audio recordings of English as a lingua franca – a common means of communication between speakers for whom English is not their native language. VOICE is the first freely available resource which systematically samples what is now the most widespread use of English in the world.

The corpus is freely available and can be downloaded from the OTA website: http://ota.oucs.ox.ac.uk/headers/2542.xml
