Digital Archive of Southern Speech

Using the External Hard Drive

Digital Archive of Souther Speech (LDC2012S03) is distributed on an external hard drive unlike most of the LDC's corpora which are either available via Web Download or on CD/DVD. We hope this guide will aid you in. It is intended for Windows users.

At this point a dialog box will appear asking you if you want to open the drive or it will merely be accessible from "My Computer." Below are illustrative images. Feel free to contact LDC at with any questions.
