The corpus consists of responses to prompts spoken over commercial telephone lines by speakers of English, Farsi (Persian), French, German, Hindi, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin Chinese, Spanish, Tamil and Vietnamese. It contains a total of 1,927 calls, an average of 175 calls per language.
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.
