SpeechRecorder is a platform independent audio recording software for speech corpus recordings. It is implemented in Java in a clean object-oriented design and adheres to established technology standards and document interchange formats. SpeechRecorder allows Unicode text and multimedia prompts, it supports audio recordings via more than two channels, and it features multiple configurable screens. Recording sessions are defined by recording scripts written in XML. The recording scripts can be executed manually by the experimenter, or automatically for unsupervised recordings; progress through the script can be sequential or randomized. SpeechRecorder is based on URLs to access local and network resources and thus allows recordings via the WWW.
