  "description": "<p>The dataset was created to enable research on automatic speech recognition in Boul&eacute; (Baule) language. The dataset was intentionally created with this task in mind, in order to participate in the Google NLP Hack Series: Intro to ASR Africa Challenge hosted on the Zindi Africa platform. It contains about 565 recordings of participants reading a transcription in Baule as spoken in C&ocirc;te d&rsquo;Ivoire, one sentence at a time. Each example contains the audio files and the associated text. The audio is recorded in a less noisy environment by the speakers using their android phone. The<br>\ndataset is multi-speaker, containing recordings from 4 volunteers (2 males and 2 females), where each volunteer contributed up to 141 recordings. The recordings took place in Abidjan, C&ocirc;te d&rsquo;Ivoire in April 2022.</p>",
