This Speech corpus has been developed as part of PhD work carried out by Nawar Halabi at the University of Southampton. The corpus was recorded in south Levantine Arabic (Damascian accent) using a professional studio. Synthesized speech as an output using this corpus has produced a high quality, natural voice.
It is released here under the non-commercial creative commons license specified below. In case further rights are required, or you require consultancy for building Arabic speech corpora, please contact Nawar Halabi by email. Thank you for your interest.
More documentation will be added in the future. Please refer to Nawar Halabi's 18-month report for more details. Please note that the apostrophe which follows some vowel phonemes in the corpus indicates that the vowel is in a stressed syllable.
