Contents of the datasets

The first version of the Donate Speech Corpus (Puhelahjat) is a collection of speech recordings accumulated during the Donate Speech campaign between 16.6.2020 and 14.9.2021.

The resource contains a total of about 3200 hours of speech recordings, out of which about 1600 hours have been transcribed. The resource also includes information about the elicitation tasks for which each of the speech samples was donated in the original campaign, and the background details that were voluntarily provided by speech donors.

The resource is available via the download service of the Language Bank of Finland under restricted terms and conditions. The services of the Language Bank are directed at academic researchers. For companies and non-academic organizations, access to Puhelahjat datasets may be acquired for a fee. Further details can be requested by email at lahjoita-puhetta@helsinki.fi.

In accordance with the specific terms and conditions of the Puhelahjat resource, it is also possible to grant access to the data for commercial and non-academic purposes. However, in this case, a separate license agreement between the University of Helsinki and the company or organization is required. When the agreement is signed and the payment has been made, access can be granted to the representative authorized by the user organization.

The representative may log in by using an eDuuni identity.
  5. In connection with the application, the company applying for the right of use must provide a public link to their Privacy Notice (or similar document) regarding the processing of the personal data contained in the material. This information will be published on the website of the Language Bank.
