Each response to a prompt is stored as a separate waveform file and the files are organized according to prompt (response type); all responses from a given call have a unique caller-index number as part of the file named, so that responses can easily be sorted by speaker. Waveform data are stored in compressed form, using the NIST SPHERE 2.0 software package, which is available separately at no charge to users. SPHERE 2.0 provides the decompression software needed to extract the waveform data, as well as tools for accessing and modifying file headers.
Time-aligned phonetic transcriptions are provided for a subset of responses and a complete log of each (giving speaker sex, quality judgments and orthographic transcriptions of all responses) is included in a form suitable for use as a relational data base.
