Japanese Speecon database
The Japanese Speecon database is divided into 2 sets:
1) The first set comprises the recordings of 556 adult Japanese speakers (268 males, 288 females), recorded over 4 microphone channels in 4 recording environments (office, entertainment, car, public place).
2) The second set comprises the recordings of 51 child Japanese speakers (25 boys, 26 girls), recorded over 4 microphone channels in 1 recording environment (children room).
