The Austrian SpeechDat(AT) MDB-1000 database contains the recordings of 1,000 Austrian speakers (543 males, 457 females) recorded over the Austrian mobile telephone network. The database is partitioned into 5 CD-ROMs, in ISO 9660 format.
Speech samples are stored as sequences of 8-bit 8 kHz A-law, uncompressed. Each prompted utterance is stored in a separate file, and each signal file is accompanied by an ASCII SAM label file which contains the relevant descriptive information.
This speech database, was validated by SPEX (the Netherlands) to assess its compliance with the SpeechDat format and content specifications.
Each speaker uttered the following items:
