Information Technology - Speaker Recognition Format for Raw Data Interchange (SIVR-1)



1 Scope
This standard specifies a concept and data format for representation of the human voice at the raw-data
level with optional inclusion of nonstandardized extended data. It does not address handling of data that
has been processed to the feature or voice model levels.
The data format is generic in that it may be applied to and used in a wide range of application areas where
automated and human-to-human SIV is performed. No application-specific requirements, equipment, or
features are addressed in this standard. Through its XML orientation, this standard does, however,
reflect recognition of the overwhelming dominance of the VoiceXML standard in speech processing and
associated XML-based standards.
This standard contains definitions of relevant terms, a description of the basic speaker-recognition
Session, a data format for containing the data, and conformance information.
SIV applications and engines utilize adaptation to automatically update the information in a reference
model. Despite its value, representing adaptation lies outside of the bounds of this standard because it
operates on voice model data and this standard focuses on raw data transmission.
