*The GlobalPhone Hausa corpus contains 7,895 utterances spoken by 33 
male and 69 female speakers in the age range of 16 to 60 years. Native 
speakers of Hausa were asked to read prompted sentences of newspaper 
articles. The entire collection took place in 5 different locations in 
Cameroon. The speech data contains a variety of accents: Maroua, Douala, 
Yaoundé, Bafoussam, Ngaoundéré, and Nigeria.

The GlobalPhone corpus developed in collaboration with the Karlsruhe 
Institute of Technology (KIT) was designed to provide read speech data 
for the development and evaluation of large continuous speech 
recognition systems in the most widespread languages of the world, and 
to provide a uniform, multilingual speech and text database for language 
independent and language adaptive speech recognition as well as for 
language identification tasks.

The corpus now consists of 20 languages: Arabic (ELRA-S0192), Bulgarian 
(ELRA-S0319), Chinese-Mandarin (ELRA-S0193), Chinese-Shanghai 
(ELRA-S0194), Croatian (ELRA-S0195), Czech (ELRA-S0196), French 
(ELRA-S0197), German (ELRA-S0198), Hausa (ELRA-S0347), Japanese 
(ELRA-S0199), Korean (ELRA-S0200), Polish (ELRA-S0320), Portuguese
