UCLA High-Speed Laryngeal Video and Audio was developed by UCLA Speech Processing and Auditory Perception Laboratory and is comprised of high-speed laryngeal video recordings of the vocal folds and synchronized audio recordings from nine subjects collected between April 2012 and April 2013. Speakers were asked to sustain the vowel /i/ for approximately ten seconds while holding voice quality, fundamental frequency, and loudness as steady as possible.
In the field of speech production theory, data such as contained in this release may be used to study the relationship between vocal folds vibration and resulting voice quality.
None of the subjects had a history of a voice disorder. There was no native language requirement for recruiting subjects; participants were native speakers of various languages, including English, Mandarin Chinese, Taiwanese Mandarin, Cantonese and German.
Audio data is presented as 16kHz 16-bit flac and video is in avi format at 5 fps (frames per second).
None at this time.
