Expressive Speech Dataset

Voice is a natural form of communication. Outside of transferring information, the human voice holds many paralinguistic features, such as the emotional state and the speaker's intention.

With this dataset, we aim to enable those who have otherwise lost the ability to speak naturally and emotionally, bring about a more natural conversation between humans and machines and enable immersive experiences within interactive technologies.
