The SWARA Corpus is a result of the SWARA Project, funded by the Romanian Ministry of Education, under the grant agreement PN-II-PT-PCCA-2013-4 No 6/2014. The corpus contains over 21 hours of high quality recordings from 17 different speakers. The data is segmented in 19,279 utterances and includes their orthographic transcripts and semi-automatic phone-level alignments.
