FRESCO, a polyphone-like telephone speech database in French, was produced as part of the SpeechDat(M) project. Containing approximately 35,000 utterances recorded from 1,000 callers over the terrestrial telephone network in France, it offers immediately usable and relevant speech for the training, assessment and deployment of speaker-independent speech recognisers based on phoneme models or word models. In addition to a speech and annotation file for every utterance, the database contains a pronunciation lexicon for all 13,000 different words recorded. The database consists of two two subsets DB1 and DB2. DB1 contains the complete set of data (phonetically rich sentences and application oriented data). DB2 contains only the phonetically rich sentences. The speaker set is balanced with respect to gender and adheres to a predefined age distribution, while the geographic distribution roughly resembles the demographics of France.
