Chapter 1. Introduction

SSC is a tool for large scale sample acquisition.

Using SSC multiple teams can gather training data from potential end users or professional speakers and collect them on the central SSCd server.

Like Simon / Simond, SSC is a client to the SSCd server.

SSC will collect samples through training procedures and send them to the SSCd server.

The system also collects useful metadata to the samples like names (or aliases) of the recorded people, their speaking niveau, possible impairments, etc. Information about the used recording equipment is also stored. This and other information is stored on the server side in a database. Please refer to the SSCd manual for more information.

For more information on the architecture of the Simon suite please see the Simon manual.
