Please create a single compressed tar file containing the following files:

  • your prompts file;
  • your audio files (in "wav" format);
  • your README and LICENSE files.

Name your tar file as follows "[voxforge username]-[year][month][day].tgz" .  For example, if you stored all these files in the /home/myusername/train folder, you would execute the following command to create your gzipped tar file:

$cd /home/myusername
$tar -zcvf kmaclean-06092006.tgz train
