Guest Users 

Guest Users are entitled to receive LDC’s newsletter, access limited portions of LDC Online, edit their user profile and change the password to their LDC account. Guest users cannot license data.

SPHERE Conversion Tools

Many LDC corpora contain speech files in NIST SPHERE format. The programs below convert SPHERE files to other formats.

This program is suitable for Windows systems. It converts many files at once. Users may find the batch conversion simpler, but may also find that the program provides less flexibility and control.
