A large-scale Japanese speech database is described. It consists of (1) an isolated-word speech database and 2) a continuous-speech database. To facilitate usage for speech research, multiple transcriptions have been made in five different layers from a simple phonemic description to fine acoustic-phonetic transcriptions. A database management system has also been developed to establish an effective link between speech data and label data for easy access to both data.
