austalk package provides an interface to the Austalk speech collection on the Alveo Virtual Lab. It
makes use of the
alveo package to identify speakers and items for download.
You can install the released version of austalk fro
library(devtools) install_github("Alveo/alveo-r") install_github("Alveo/austalk-r")
You can then load the library to access Austalk data via the Alveo API. The library contains functions to allow you to get a list of speakers in Austalk with associated metadata; to find items for a list of speakers and to download item metadata and documents. It provides an alternate method of accessing Austalk data to the web based interfaces on Alveo and the Austalk website.
See the vignette in the package for an introduction to the functionality in the package.
