VTR Formants Database
group at Microsoft Research (Redmond, Washington, US) and IPAM and
Electrical Engineering at UCLA (Los Angeles, CA, US) have recently jointly
developed a database for manually labeled vocal-tract-resonance (or formant)
trajectories, for research in speech processing including analysis, synthesis,
and recognition. The work has been supported in part by the NSF.
The database contains a representative subset of the TIMIT corpus with respect
to speaker, gender, dialect and phonetic context, with a total of 538 sentences.
