AES76-2022, "AES standard for audio forensics - Speech Collection Guidelines for Speaker Recognition: Interviewing at a Temporary Location" has been published on 2022-03-19.
This document specifies recommended practices for recording audio intended for use in forensic speaker recognition analyses, focusing on doing so at a temporary, non-laboratory location by possibly a non-professional in the forensic sciences. It includes recommendations for the physical preparation of the location, selection of appropriate recording hardware and audio formats, and possible methods for interviewers to elicit the desired type and amount of speech from subjects. It does not cover the methods used to analyze the resulting recordings and does not deal with details related to the handling, transmission, storage, or preservation of the collected data but does include a checklist to aid in the process.
This work was done in the SC-03-12 working group under the leadership of Marisa Dery.
