		     *** ELRA NEW RESOURCES ***


We are happy to announce a new resource available via ELRA:
	_______________________________________
	ELRA-S0063 German SpeechDat(II) FDB 4000
	_______________________________________

	The German SpeechDat(II) FDB 4000 consists of 4000 calls over
	the German fixed network, stored on 17 CD-ROMs in the final
	SpeechDat(II) database exchange format. The speech databases
	made within the SpeechDat(II) project were validated by SPEX,
	the Netherlands, to assess their compliance with the SpeechDat
	format and content specifications.

	The following items were recorded:
	- 1 isolated digit
	- 1 sequence of 10 isolated digits
	- prompt sheet number = 5
	- 9-11 digit telephone number (read)
	- 15-16 digit credit card number (read, 150 different credit card
	  numbers were found)
	- 6 digit PIN code (read)
	- 1 natural number (read)
	- 1 money amount (read)
	- 2 yes/no questions (spontaneous, not prompted)
	- 3 dates (1 spontaneous, e.g. birthday; 1 prompted text form;
          1 relative and general date form)
	- 1 time of day (spontaneous)
	- 1 time phrase (read)
	- 3 application words
	- 1 word spotting phrase
	- 5 directory assistance names (1 spontaneous name (e.g. forename),
	  1 spontaneous city name, 1 read city name (from a list of 500 most
	  frequent), 1 read company/agency name (from a list of 500 most
          frequent), 1 read proper name, fore- and surname (from list of
          150 SDB names).
	- 3 spellings (1 spontaneous, e.g. forename; 1 directory city name; 1
	  real/artificial word)
	- 4 isolated words
	- 9 phonetically rich sentences (read)

	The speech files are stored as sequence of 8-bit, 8kHz A-law speech
        files and are not compressed. Each prompt utterance is stored within
        a separate file and has an accompanying ASCII SAM label file.
