puhelahjat: Removal requests – Poistopyynnöt

Tällä sivulla on lueteltu ne Lahjoita puhetta -aineistokokonaisuuteen kuuluvat laitetunnisteet (clientID), joiden mukaiset tiedostot käyttäjien tulee poistaa aineiston kaikista versioista.

  • Jos esimerkiksi clientID-tunniste ”clt0012345” olisi mainittu listassa, jokaisen käyttäjän on tarkistettava, ettei hänen laitteillaan ole tiedostoja, joiden nimi alkaa merkkijonolla ”clt0012345_”, eikä mitään niiden muunnelmia tai palasia. Tässä esimerkkitapauksessa käyttäjän pitäisi etsiä ja tarvittaessa poistaa laitteiltaan mm. seuraavat tiedostot:
    • clt0012345_rec0003.flac
    • clt0012345_ses12_rec0012.flac
    • clt0012345_ses12_rec0012.txt
    • clt0012345_ses12_rec0012.TextGrid
    • sekä kaikki em. tiedostoista tehdyt muunnelmat tai yhdistelmät, joissa on mukana samoja tietoja.

Mikäli löydät poistettavaksi määrätyn tiedoston Kielipankissa olevasta aineistosta, ilmoitathan meille välittömästi.


This page provides a list of all clientID’s whose corresponding files must be deleted from all versions of the data. Look for any filenames starting with one of the clientID’s plus underscore, and remove them. In case you discover that some of the datasets in Kielipankki still contain files that were marked for removal, please inform us immediately.

Contents of the resource

The Donate Speech Corpus, abbreviated Puhelahjat, was compiled in the Donate Speech campaign implemented by Vake Oy (later Ilmastorahasto), Yle and the University of Helsinki, launched on June 16, 2020. During the project, anyone who speaks some Finnish had the opportunity to donate their own speech in order to promote language research and the development of language technology. The donated speech was recorded via an easy-to-use browser or mobile application.

The first version of the audio material includes the speech samples that were donated by spring 2021. The total duration of the recordings in this version is approximately 3200 hours. In 2021, approximately 1,600 hours of the recordings were transcribed by hand, and the resulting transcriptions were aligned with the corresponding audio recordings using automatic methods.

The version 1.0 of the dataset is available in the download service for researchers that have been granted access. Some subsets of the complete dataset (selected for instance for the development of automatic speech recognition) will also be made available as separate download packages. The description and the citation practices of each subset can be found in the corresponding metadata records.

The Donate Speech datasets can be updated later, for instance after a sufficient amount of new donations have accumulated. New versions can also be created as researchers or companies continue to transcribe and annotate the existing recordings more extensively.

How to obtain access to use the material?

The research use of the Donate Speech Corpus and any of its subsets is subject to the license of the resource. Note that the license also includes resource-specific data protection conditions.

Research use

  1. Researchers can apply for the right to use the data via the usual application procedure in the Language Bank Rights system (see instructions).
  2. When applying for access, the researcher must consider to the license requirements, including the resource-specific data protection terms and conditions regarding the processing of personal data, see license (for researchers).
  3. Before starting to process the data, the researcher must submit the title of the project and the link to the public Privacy Notice regarding the processing of personal data in their project (see the e-form).
  4. When the application is approved, the researcher can access the entire Donate Speech Corpus as well as all versions and subsets of the resource.

The instructions for commercial use can be found on a separate page.

Donate Speech (Lahjoita puhetta)

Suomeksi

The Language Bank of Finland (Kielipankki) is working together with the Finnish Broadcasting Company (Yle) and the Finnish State Development Company (Vake Oy) in the Donate Speech campaign (Lahjoita puhetta). Experts from Aalto University and the University of Turku have also participated in the project.

The goal is to gather 10000 hours of ordinary, casual Finnish speech that can be used for studying language as well as for developing technology and services that can be readily used in Finnish. In this project, particular attention has been paid in order to allow for both academic and commercial use of the material under given terms.

Speech is donated via the web browser or mobile app that offers a selection of tasks under fun themes that can inspire and encourage you to talk. The app was developed by Solita.

Who can donate?

All variants of spoken Finnish are welcome, including the speech of second-language Finnish learners. As long as you speak some Finnish and can understand the Finnish information and instructions in the app, you can donate!

What happens to the donated speech?

The speech material donated during the campaign will be stored in the Language Bank of Finland (Kielipankki), coordinated by the University of Helsinki.

The speech material can be redistributed to individual researchers, universities and research organizations or private companies that need it for studying language or artificial intelligence, for developing AI solutions or for higher education purposes related to the aforementioned areas.

Read more about processing personal data in the Donate Speech campaign (in Finnish) and the privacy practices of the Language Bank of Finland.

How much does it cost to use the speech material?

The Language Bank of Finland will begin redistributing the speech data when a sufficient amount of material has been donated and when the appropriate application process is in place. For academic researchers, the use of the data will be free of charge, similarly to the rest of the services of the Language Bank of Finland. For commercial use, a fee will probably be charged in order to cover handling costs. Details about the pricing will be provided at a later stage.

What kind of research is performed on data that are available via the Language Bank of Finland?

You can find some examples of research topics in the Researcher of the Month archive of the Language Bank of Finland.
