We are preparing the publication of our data, and we anticipate that the complete corpus will be available in August 2001. There will be two sets of data on CD:

(1) a CD containing prosodically transcribed data from seven varieties of English spoken in the British Isles. The CD will contain data in five speaking styles.

(2) a set of 5 CDs containing unlabelled data from 9 varieties of English. These CDs will contain the full set of data collected during the course of the IViE project.

A change of plan

The IViE data will be published in .wav format, and not in xwaves format. Xwaves, which requires .d format, is no longer available. Wav files can be read my the vast majority of signal processing packages.
