The CALLHOME Egyptian Arabic Speech Supplement was produced by Linguistic Data Consortium (LDC), catalog number LDC2002S37 and ISBN 1-58563-243-0.

This publication contains 20 CALLHOME Egyptian Arabic telephone conversations. The corresponding transcripts are published as CALLHOME Egyptian Arabic Transcripts Supplement, LDC catalog number LDC2002T38. These conversations had originally been held in reserve for future NIST HUB5 Non-English evaluations, but are being "re-tasked" to provide additional material for general use.


There are 20 data files in sphere format. The files are 8 KHz shorten-compressed two-channel mulaw. 12 of the files were recorded from domestic phone calls (both parties living in the continental U.S.), while the other eight are overseas calls (a participant in the U.S. called a friend or relative in Egypt or some other overseas country).

There is a total of 273,681,144 bytes (261 Mbytes) or eight hours of audio data.
