## Introduction

The TIMIT corpus of read speech is designed to provide speech data for
acoustic-phonetic studies and for the development and evaluation of
automatic speech recognition systems. TIMIT contains broadband
recordings of 630 speakers of eight major dialects of American English,
each reading ten phonetically rich sentences. The TIMIT corpus includes
time-aligned orthographic, phonetic and word transcriptions as well as a
16-bit, 16kHz speech waveform file for each utterance. Corpus design was
a joint effort among the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT),
SRI International (SRI) and Texas Instruments, Inc. (TI). The speech was
recorded at TI, transcribed at MIT and verified and prepared for CD-ROM
production by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

The TIMIT corpus transcriptions have been hand verified. Test and
training subsets, balanced for phonetic and dialectal coverage, are
specified. Tabular computer-searchable information is included as well
as written documentation.
