The Danish SpeechDat(M) database is the speech database collected within the SpeechDat(M) project. It consists ofpolyphone-like data recorded by 1,523 speakers. The speech files are stored as sequences of 8 bit 8 kHz A-law samples. Each prompted utterance is stored within a separatefile and the associated label files are stored in SAM file format. An ASCII file is attached and is listing information about each speaker: speaker code, sex, age, region, prompt number. The lexicon is presented in a TAB delimited ASCII file containing an alphabetically ordered list of distinct lexical itemsoccurring in the database. Each entry contains a frequency count and corresponding pronunciation information.
