The script was specially designed to provide material for both training and testing of many classes of speech recognizers which contains 16 general categories and more than 50 specific sub-categories. Each speaker was recorded under two of three driving environments (parked, city driving and highway driving) with recording conditions such as fan on/off and window up/down. Each speaker will be recorded 150 utterances and spontaneous utterances per environment and totally 300 utterances were recorded for each speaker.
