Speech was collected using an automated system that answered the telephone, played digitized prompts in the appropriate language to request the speech samples and digitized the callers' responses for a designated period of time.
Log files are included that provide a set of automatic measurements made on each utterance. In addition, some utterances were automatically segmented into broad phonetic catagories. The speech data are compressed, with NIST SPHERE headers.
