The characteristic features of each speaker should be collected
in the speaker profile set of the corpus. This may be either a
file for each speaker (recommended) or a table summarizing the
features per speaker in one line or column.
machine-readable the speaker profiles have
to be standardized (parsable),
optimally in XML (see section
, p. ).
If you are producing speech corpora on a regular basis, you
might consider including speaker profiles of your corpora into
a database system. Keep the mapping from speaker names to IDs
separate from this database (see also chapter for a
discussion of data protection).
