The Finnish-Swedish SpeechDat(II) FDB-1000 contains the recordings of 1,000 Finnish speakers (455 males, 545 females) recorded over the Finnish fixed telephone network. The FDB-1000 database is partitioned into 4 CDs, the first 3 CDs comprise 300 speakers sessions, the 4th comprises 100 speakers. Speech samples are stored as sequences of 8-bit 8 kHz A-law. Each prompted utterance is stored in a separate file. Each signal file is accompanied by an ASCII SAM label file which contains the relevant descriptive information. This speech database was validated by SPEX (the Netherlands) to assess its compliance with the SpeechDat format and content specifications. Each speaker uttered the following items, in the variant of Swedish spoken in Finland: * 1 isolated digit * 1 sequence of 10 isolated digits * 4 connected digits (1 sheet number -5 digits, 1 telephone number ?9/10 digits, 1 credit card number -16 digits, 1 PIN code -6 digits) * 1 currency money amount * 1 natural number * 3 dates (1 spontaneous date e.g. birthday, 1 prompted date, 1 relative or general date expression) * 2 time phrases (1 spontaneous time of day, 1 time phrase) * 3 spelled words (1 spontaneous e.g. own forename, 1 city name, 1 phonetically rich word) * 5 directory assistance names (1 spontaneous e.g. own forename, 1 spontaneous city of growing up, 1 frequent city name, 1 frequent company name, 1 common forename surname) * 2 yes/no questions (1 predominantly "yes" question, 1 predominantly "no" question) * 6 application words * 1 word spotting phrase using an embedded application word * 4 phonetically rich words * 9 phonetically rich sentences The following age distribution has been obtained: 178 speakers are under 16, 412 speakers are between 16 and 30, 216 speakers are between 31 and 45, 160 speakers are between 46 and 60, and 34 speakers are over 60. A pronunciation lexicon with a phonemic transcription in SAMPA is also included.
