In the case of speech acquisition: • Give instructions as to how to use the microphone and rely on the honesty of the worker. • Ask the speaker to listen to what was recorded and approve it. • Sample the recorded signal level in one or two utterances and give the worker feedback. For speech transcription: • Use an audio captcha or have the worker transcribe one or more aforeknown utterances. • Do not let the worker continue if a transcription is empty or was started before the end of the playback.

Chernova et al. (2010) collected dialog data. They recorded the worker and then showed them the ASR transcription of what they had just said, using the WAMI toolkit (Gruenstein et al. 2009).
