Validation Check List

The next step after defining the reference is to formulate a description of the validation topics, i.e. what exactly has to be checked in the validation process. This validation check list must state precisely what proportion of the corpus must be validated manually. For instance, what percentage of the annotations have to be checked for correctness and what exactly are the references and tolerance measures for being considered `correct'. Also, list the required tools to perform the manual validations; these are usually very specialized software tools that should be provided by the producer together with the speech corpus. Both the validator and the producer / client should sign this document for approval.
