Re: MP3 Podcast Audio as a Corpus Audio Source
Nice to hear from you. In my experiments (for TIMIT) I didnt find much
degradation of speech recognition accuracy with MP3 compression,
provided the training and test data are both MP3 compressed. However,
in a standards perspective it is better to stick to wav/shorten files,
as many speech toolkits dont yet handle MP3 directly.
Hope this helps,
