The SpeechDat Catalan FDB database contains the recordings of 1,005 Catalan speakers (474 males, 531 females) recorded over the Spanish fixed telephone network. The database is partitioned into 4 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.
Each speaker uttered the following items:
The following age distribution has been obtained: 13 speakers are under 16, 473 are between 16 and 30, 286 are between 31 and 45, 192 are between 46 and 60, and 41 speakers are over 60.
A pronunciation lexicon with a phonemic transcription in SAMPA is also included.
