Does anybody know any open voice/speech annotated database for Voice Activity Detection? Or any other corpus for speech evaluation purposes?
The ones I know are private: AURORA, TIMIT, SpeechDat-Car, Speecon, Catalan Speecon.
The other option is to create hand-labeled annotations for own recordings, or use a method like the Short-Term Energy Contour. But in the first case the amount of files to process would be insurmountable, and in the second, the energy based methods only work fine for free-noise recordings.
