I would like to thank Timo very much for his donation of a German corpus to VoxForge.  From his e-mail to me:

Hi Ken,

I've just uploaded a corpus of spontaneous German speech to the FTP-site (I put it into openpento/). It contains 270 chunks of speech (utterance-like) from 9 speakers, totalling 90 minutes of speech (not counting silence). Files are 44.1kHz, 16 bit, FLAC-encoded. There is a short README detailing the transcription.

...

Cheers,
Timo

PENTOMINO NAMING CORPUS

this corpus contains spontaneous speech of 9 subjects
in which they try to select, rotate and place pieces in
a simple 2D board game.

each audio file in CutFiles/ contains a single utterance,
and is accompanied by a corresponding label file,
which details start and ending of each utterance.

files {1,2,3}_3 contain lists of files with the contained words.

Transcription is as follows:

- " . " signifies a short pause of 0.0-0.33 seconds
- ":" signifies lengthening of the transcribed word
- other punctuation (",", "+") can be ignored
- uncomplete or otherwise mispronounced words are enclosed
with "BAD". Such files should probably be skipped during
ASR training.


this corpus is released under the terms of the GPL to voxforge.org.
please contact timo@ling.uni-potsdam.de if you have any questions.
