Wikipedia Spanish Speech and Transcripts consists of approximately 25 hours of Spanish read speech and transcripts. The read text was taken from the Spanish version of WikiProject Spoken Wikipedia, referred to as Wikipedia Grabada. The transcripts were developed for this release.


The audio is comprised of short recordings from Wikipedia articles read by 193 speakers (150 male, 43 female). Audio files were segmented and transcribed by native Spanish speakers.

Audio is presented as 16kHz, 16-bit, single channel flac files. When uncompressed, they produce PCM wav files.

Transcripts are contained in a single plain text file encoded as UTF-8. Speaker metadata is also provided.
