15 Dec 2017 Open Speech data

General information

Contributor: Laurent Besacier

Institution: Univ. Grenoble Alpes, CNRS, Inria, Grenoble INP, LIG

Description: Large scale (>200h) and publicly available read audio book corpus. This corpus is an augmentation of LibriSpeech ASR Corpus (1000h) and contains English utterances (from audiobooks) automatically aligned with French text. Our dataset offers ~236h of speech aligned to translated text. Speech recordings and source texts are originally from Gutenberg Project, which is a digital library of public domain books read by volunteers. Our augmentation of LibriSpeech is straightforward: we automatically aligned e-books in a foreign language (French) with English utterances of LibriSpeech. We gathered open domain e-books in French and extracted individual chapters available in LibriSpeech Corpus. Furthermore, we aligned chapters in French with English utterances in order to provide a corpus of speech recordings aligned with their translations.
