Here are my files for the cc and rp series.

If the signal to noise is not good enough, I'll re-do them for you, I could switch off the firewall computer.

I hope I've done it all ok?
Your reply would be appreciated.

Hi Christopher,

The audio sounds great - very little noise.  Thanks for the submission.

I've committed it to our subversion repository on the VoxForge Dev server. When we get enough audio, I'll create updated acoustic models.

Just a note your the license - you are correct to state that the original copyright owner owns the copyright of the text, however, you created a derivative work (your speech audio submission) of the the copyrighted text, and you have copyright protection on your creation - that is what we are subjecting to the GPL license.  I updated your license on VoxForge to reflect this.

all the best, 

Ken

Please submit as much speech as you can!

The target amount of audio for release 1.0 of the VoxForge Speech Audio Repository is 140 hours of speech (why? this is the same amount of audio used by the Sphinx Acoustic Models used by the Sphinx Group Speech Recognition Engines.)

thanks,

Ken
