This paper describes the factors used in designing and recording large speech databases for applications requiring speech synthesis. Given the growing demand for customized and domain specific voices for use in corpus based synthesis systems, good practices should be established for the creation of these databases which are a key factor in the quality of the resulting speech synthesizer. This paper focuses on the factors affecting to the designing of the recording prompts, on the speaker selection procedure, on the recording setup and on the quality control of the resulting database.
