Abstract:

This report describes a corpus of task-oriented dialogues set in the TRAINS domain. A user collaborates with a planning assistant to accomplish some task involving manufacturing and shipping goods in a railroad freight system. We include a description of the task, collection situation, and transcriptions conventions. The audio files, along with time-aligned word and phoneme transcriptions are available on CD-ROM from the Linguistic Data Consortium. Altogether, there are 98 dialogs included, collected using 20 different tasks and 34 different speakers. This amounts to six and a half hours of speech, about 5900 speaker turns, and 55000 transcribed words.
