Phoenix Corpus

The best results in the SignSpeak project have been obtained on the Phoenix Database, and the demonstrator on this website shows the performance of the developed technology.

The Phoenix database has been created by RWTH, one of the partners in the consortium. In total, the database features seven different signers in controlled (TV-studio) conditions performing simultaneous interpretations of German weather forecasts. This controlled context domain implies a smaller vocabulary size and higher repetition of signs (average type-token ratio) than for other databases, explaining why the SignSpeak technology works better on this database.
