The SALA II Spanish from Argentina database contains the recordings of 1,076 Argentinian speakers (534 males and 542 females) recorded over the Argentinian mobile telephone network. The following acoustic conditions were selected as representative of a mobile user's environment: ? Passenger in moving car, railway, bus, etc. (204 speakers) ? Public place (281 speakers) ? Stationary pedestrian by road side (240 speakers) ? Home/office environment (291 speakers) ? Passenger in moving car using a hands-free kit (60 speakers) This database is distributed as 1 DVD-ROM The speech files are stored as sequences of 8-bit, 8kHz a-law speech files and are not compressed, according to the specifications of SALA II. Each prompt utterance is stored within a separate file and has an accompanying ASCII SAM label file. This speech database was validated by SPEX (the Netherlands) to assess its compliance with the SALA II format and content specifications.
