The PAIDIALOGOS database was produced within the French national project NEOLOGOS, as part of the Technolangue programme funded by the French Ministry of Research and New Technologies (MRNT).

The PAIDIALOGOS database contains 37,364 utterances from 1010 child French speakers (510 males and 500 females) recorded over the French fixed telephone network.
This database is distributed as 1 DVD-ROM. The speech files are stored as sequences of 8-bit, 8kHz A-law speech files and are not compressed, according to the specifications of NEOLOGOS. Each prompt utterance is stored within a separate file and has an accompanying ASCII SAM label file.
This speech database was validated by SPEX (the Netherlands) to assess its compliance with the NEOLOGOS format and content specifications.
Each speaker uttered the following items:
The following age distribution has been obtained: 6 speakers are under 7, 541 speakers are between 7 and 11, 308 speakers are between 12 and 14, 154 speakers are between 15 and 16, and 1 speaker is over 16.
