Announcing a NEW RELEASE from the
LINGUISTIC DATA CONSORTIUM
DCIEM SLEEP DEPRIVATION STUDY: MAP TASK DIALOGUES
This set of CD-ROMs contains the materials used to collect all 216
spoken dialogues digital audio, orthographic transcriptions,
documentation, and source code for tools. The dialogues were selected
to provide balanced representation at different points in a sleep
The materials have been designed to be easily accessible to users with
different equipment and a variety of needs, from those who merely wish
to generate hardcopies of the orthographic transcriptions to those who
require computational analyses of the speech material. All the text
files (transcriptions and documentation) should be readable and
printable via most systems that can be connected to a CD-ROM reader.
The maps are intended for printing via POSTSCRIPT printers, and the
speech files are provided with human-readable standard headers, enabling
them to be played by a wide range of environments for processing sampled
