DescriptionClean and reverberant parallel speech database. The database was designed to train and test speech dereverberation methods that operate at 48kHz. A more detailed description can be found in the paper associated with the database. Clean speech was made reverberant by convolving it with a room impulse response. The room impulse responses used to create this dataset were selected from: - The ACE challenge (http://www.commsp.ee.ic.ac.uk/~sap/projects/ace-challenge/) - The MIRD database (http://www.iks.rwth-aachen.de/en/research/tools-downloads/multichannel-impulse-response-database/) - The MARDY database (http://www.commsp.ee.ic.ac.uk/~sap/resources/mardy-multichannel-acoustic-reverberation-database-at-york-database/) The clean speech database was obtained from the Voice Banking Corpus, available here: http://homepages.inf.ed.ac.uk/jyamagis/release/VCTK-Corpus.tar.gz

Listening test materials for "Evaluating comprehension of natural and synthetic conversational speech" Wester, Mirjam; Watts, Oliver; Henter, Gustav EjeCurrent speech synthesis methods typically operate on isolated sentences and lack convincing prosody when generating longer segments of speech. Similarly, prevailing TTS evaluation paradigms, such as intelligibility ...
