Update Service

Gleiche Seite in deutsch

Last update of this page: 11/01/96


The CDROMS of the BAS corpora are no mass production. Each CDROM is pressed from the last upgraded master available at the time of order ('press on demand'). Check the version number in the main documentation file for the exact version you are using. Each CDROM is mounted and tested for structure consistancy before shipping. However, in some very rare cases you may receive a CDROM that shows certain errors caused by the raw material. Please send back such a CDROM with a short note describing the error and BAS will replace the CDROM without any charges. Please note that optical pressed CDROMs have a lower life time than pressed CDROMs (e.g. 10 years). Please handle them with care. Also note that BAS takes no responsibility of any kind for damage caused by data errors on our CDROMs.

Error Reports

BAS is always trying to keep the quality of the speech corpora as high as possible. If you or your colleagues report severe errors in the licensed corpus that causes BAS to produce a new edition of this corpus, your company/institution will receive one set of free copies of this new edition without paying any license or productions fees. A new edition of a BAS corpus is defined by an increase of the first version digit (e.g. PD1 2.3 -> PD1 3.0).
