Danish Sign Language Corpus
The Danish Sign Language Corpus is a collection of video material from 31 signers of Danish Sign Language from Denmark. The Corpus is used to build a DTS-Danish Dictionary. The Danish Sign Language Dictionary project building the corpus is based at the Bachelor's Degree Programme in Danish Sign Language and Speech-to-text Interpreter at the University College Copenhagen and led by Mads Jonathan Pedersen and Thomas Troelsgård. The project started 2014 and is still ongoing.
The recordings took place in a classroom, in a rather informal setting. One camera was used filming the participants from a front view. The signers were recorded alone, having a deaf staff member as receiver, who also gave instructions on the tasks.
