English Deep South Media Audio Dataset

Project Overview:

Objective

The English Deep South Media Audio Dataset project is designed to develop a comprehensive audio dataset focusing on the unique accents and dialects of the English Deep South. This dataset serves as a foundational tool for training sophisticated speech recognition software, capable of understanding and processing the distinct linguistic nuances found in this region.

Scope

This project encompasses the meticulous collection and annotation of audio samples from a variety of sources, including local volunteers, authentic regional media, and professionally recorded dialogues. These audio samples cover a broad spectrum of everyday language use, from casual conversations to formal speech, providing a rich resource for linguistic analysis and software training.
