This release contains the materials used to collect all 216 spoken dialogues digital audio, orthographic transcriptions, documentation and source code for tools. The dialogues were selected to provide balanced representation at different points in a sleep deprivation experiment.


The materials have been designed to be easily accessible to users with different equipment and a variety of needs from those who merely wish to generate hardcopies of the orthographic transcriptions to those who require computational analyses of the speech material. All the text files (transcriptions and documentation) should be readable and printable via most systems. The maps are intended for printing via POSTSCRIPT printers and the speech files are provided with human-readable standard headers, enabling them to be played by a wide range of environments for processing sampled speech.
