TC-STAR female baseline voice: Laura
Laura was created within the scope of the TC-STAR project (IST- FP6-506738) funded by the European Commission.
Laura contains the recordings of one female English (British) speaker recorded in a noise-reduced room through a headset microphone. It consists of the recordings and annotations of read text material of approximately 10 hours of speech for baseline applications (Text-to-Speech systems). This database is distributed on 9 DVDs. The database complies with the common specifications created in the TC-STAR project.
The annotation of the database includes manual orthographic transcriptions, the automatic segmentation into phonemes and automatic generation of pitch marks. A certain percentage of phonetic segments and pitch marks has been manually checked. A pronunciation lexicon in SAMPA with POS, lemma and phonetic transcription of all the words prompted and spoken is also provided.
Speech samples are stored as sequences of 24-bit 96 kHz with the least significant byte first (“lohi” or Intel format) as (signed) integers. 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.
The TC-STAR male baseline voice: Ian is also available via ELRA under reference ELRA-S0303.
