The Basque FDB-1060 database contains the recordings of 1,060 speakers (480 males, 580 females) of Basque recorded over the fixed telephone network. This database is partitioned into 4 CDs. The database complies with the common specifications created in the SpeechDat project.
Speech samples are stored as sequences of 8-bit 8 kHz A-law. Each prompted utterance is stored in a separate file. Each signal file is accompanied by an ASCII SAM label file which contains the relevant descriptive information.
Each speaker uttered the following items:
* 6 common application words
The following age distribution has been obtained: 8 speakers are under 16, 474 are between 16 and 30, 320 are between 31 and 45, 236 are between 46 and 60, and 13 speakers are over 60. (The age of 9 speakers was not determined.)
A pronunciation lexicon with a phonemic transcription in SAMPA is also included.
