2000 HUB5 English Evaluation Transcripts was developed by the Linguistic Data Consortium (LDC) and consists of transcripts of 40 English phone conversations used in the 2000 HUB5 evaluation sponsored by NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology). The Hub5 evaluation series focused on conversational speech over the telephone with the particular task of transcribing conversational speech into text. Its goals were to explore promising new areas in the recognition of conversational speech, to develop technology incorporating those ideas and to measure the performance of new technology. This release contains transcripts in .txt format for the 40 source speech data files used in the evaluation: (1) 20 unreleased telephone conversations from the Swtichboard studies in which recruited speakers were connected through a robot operator to carry on casual conversations about a daily topic announced by the robot operator at the start of the call; and (2) 20 telephone conversations.
