Description:*Introduction* NIST 2005 Speaker Recognition Evaluation Test Data was developed at the Linguistic Data Consortium (LDC) and NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology). It consists of 525 hours of conversational telephone speech in English, Arabic, Mandarin Chinese, Russian, and Spanish and associated English transcripts used as test data in the NIST-sponsored 2005 Speaker Recognition Evaluation (SRE). The ongoing series of SRE yearly evaluations conducted by NIST are intended to be of interest to researchers working on the general problem of text independent speaker recognition. To that end the evaluations are designed to be simple, to focus on core technology issues, and to be fully supported and accessible. The task of the 2005 SRE evaluation was speaker detection, that is, to determine whether a specified speaker is speaking during a given segment of conversational speech. The task was divided into 20 distinct and separate tests involving one of five training conditions and one of four test conditions. Further information about the task conditions is contained in the NIST Year 2005 Speaker Recognition Evaluation Plan. The training data for the 2005 evaluation is available in NIST 2005 Speaker Recognition Evaluation Training Data (LDC2011S01). *Data* The speech data consists of conversational telephone speech with multi-channel data collected by LDC simultaneously from a number of auxiliary microphones. The files are organized into two segments: 10 second two-channel excerpts (continuous segments from single conversations that are estimated to contain approximately 10 seconds of actual speech in the channel of interest) and five minute two-channel conversations. The data are stored as 8-bit u-law speech signals in NIST SPHERE format. In addition to the standard header fields, the SPHERE header for each file contains some auxiliary information that includes the language of the conversation and whether the data was recorded over a telephone line. English language word transcripts in .cmt format were produced using an automatic speech recognition system (ASR) with error rates in the range of 15-30%. *Samples* For an example of the data contained in this corpus, please listen to this this sample (WAV). *Updates* Trial files for the 2005 SRE evaluation were added Jan. 05, 2012. These files define the various evaluation tests, with one file for each trial in the evaluation. The index.html and file.tbl files were also updated. All copies of LDC2011S04 ordered after Jan. 05, 2012 should contain those updates. Please contact ldc@ldc.upenn.edu with any questions.
