Home Bank: A repository for long-form real-world audio recordings of children

Conference Paper

Copyright © 2017 ISCA. HomeBank is a new component of the TalkBank system, focused on long-form (i.e., multi-hour, typically daylong) realworld recordings of children's language experiences, and it is linked to a GitHub repository in which tools for analyzing those recordings can be shared. HomeBank constitutes not only a rich resource for researchers interested in early language acquisition specifically, but also for those seeking to study spontaneous speech, media exposure, and audio environments more generally. This Show and Tell describes the procedures for accessing and contributing HomeBank data and code. It also overviews the current contents of the repositories, and provides some examples of audio recordings, available transcriptions, and currently available analysis tools.
