ELRA is happy to announce the publication of the Speech resources resulting

ELRA-S0226-01 IDIOLOGOS 1 'Bootstrap' (NEOLOGOS Project)
It contains the recordings of 1,000 French adult speakers (470 males and
530 females) recorded over the French fixed telephone network. The speakers
uttered 45 phonetically rich sentences.
The 45 sentences were the same for all speakers. See:
ELRA-S0226-02 IDIOLOGOS 2 'Eingenspeakers' (NEOLOGOS Project)
It contains the recordings of 200 French adult speakers (97 males and 103
females) recorded over the French fixed telephone network. The speakers

NEOLOGOS, a project funded by the French government within the Technolangue
programme aimed at designing speech resources for the development and the
assessment of French speech recognition and speech synthesis systems: the
PAIDIALOGOS AND IDIOLOGOS databases.
PAIDIALOGOS is the result of a collection of French child and teenage
voices, aged 7 to 17, equally divided into boys and girls, and
representative of the different regions in France. 350 speakers were
recorded over the GSM telephone network and 650 over the fixed telephone
IDIOLOGOS tried to optimize the database contents in terms of diversity of
the recorded voices, while reducing the number of recorded speakers. Its
goal was to build a reference database for French adult voices.
A description of the project is available at:
http://www.technolangue.net/article.php3?id_article=83 (in French only).
Technolangue is a French inter-ministerial-funded action (Ministry of
Research and New Technologies, Ministry of Industry and Ministry of Culture
and Communication). This programme provides access to a number of tools and
data necessary to develop technologies and to enable the use of standard
methodologies in the field.
