Hi,

I want to use all the audio data at

http://www.repository.voxforge1.org/downloads/SpeechCorpus/Trunk/Audio/Main/16kHz_16bit/

what is the preferred way to download all of it in an automated fashion?  Is it in an svn repo with anonymous checkout or packaged up in a torrent released somewhere?

Hi George,

>what is the preferred way to download all of it in an automated fashion?

wget

>Is it in an svn repo with anonymous checkout

No, the svn repo is not public - it cannot handle the traffic.

>or packaged up in a torrent released somewhere?

No.  You can set that up if you want to...

How about the other language audio files?  It seems like robots.txt disallows all of them, is that intentional?  Even the english one.

I would like all the audio files at

http://www.repository.voxforge1.org/downloads/Dutch/Trunk/Audio/Main/16kHz_16bit/
and the corresponding urls for other languages.

So are you advising me to force wget to ignore robots.txt?

Yes. 

We had bandwidth limits at one time... that is no longer the case.
