The goal of this paper is to describe significant corpora available to support speaker recognition research and evaluation, along with details about the corpora collection and design. We describe the attributes of high-quality speaker recognition corpora. Considerations of the application, domain, and performance metrics are also discussed. Additionally, a literature survey of corpora used in speaker recognition research over the last 10 years is presented. Finally we show the most common corpora used in the research community and review them on their success in enabling meaningful speaker recognition research.
