RWTH-PHOENIX-Weather Database of German Sign Language
Over a period of three years (2009 - 2011) the daily news and weather forecast airings of the German public tv-station PHOENIX featuring sign language interpretation have been recorded. Currently, only the weather forecasts of a subset of 386 editions have been transcribed using gloss notation. The transcriptions have been carried out by deaf and hard-of-hearing native speakers of German sign language. Additionally, the spoken German weather forecast has been transcribed in a semi-automatic fashion using the RASR speech recognition system. Moreover, an additional translation of the glosses into spoken German has been created to capture allowable translation variability.
