how to download audio files

Hi.  What is the preferred method of downloading the audio files?  Sure, a person could manually click on each link but that takes forever.  Is there an FTP site?  Thanks.

wget the files you want from:

Thanks!

Using wget will get one file.  wget -r seems to bring in way to much data.  Using "-np" helps a little.  Is there a known way just to bring in the files in a single directory or directory hierarch?

Is there any documentation, like a map of the server, so we can figure out where the relevant files are located?

Submissions as we received them (i.e. 'Original' audio files) are stored here:

[DIR] Original/               07-May-2009 14:07      -  

 

Downsampled versions of the same audio files are stored here:

[DIR] 16kHz_16bit/            19-Jul-2011 22:21      -  
[DIR] 8kHz_16bit/             19-Jul-2011 22:25      -  

 

These are the ones you want, and they are listed in one big directory list

Thanks, Ken!  So all the languages are together in these directories?  If so, that makes it easy.

nope - just english, but they all follow the same pattern - go to the language's download page and follow the links.

Note there is a backlog of audio to be processed (i.e. yet to be downsampled and reviewed to ensure that they are not spam...).

Thanks!  So it looks like:

English:

http://www.repository.voxforge1.org/downloads/SpeechCorpus

Dutch:

http://www.repository.voxforge1.org/downloads/Dutch

Spanish:

http://www.repository.voxforge1.org/downloads/es

etc., etc.
