Abstract: The Yaounde French Speech corpus contains speech data that was collected by the Center for Technology Enhanced Language Learning (CTELL), a research cell in the Department of Foreign Languages, United States Military Academy, West Point, New York. Collection took place in Yaounde, the capital city of Cameroon, in 2003. CTELL created this corpus in order to train acoustic models for automatic speech recognition (ASR), and to, thereby, investigate the utility of ASR in pedagogical technology. The corpus is a sample of the French language, as spoken by citizens of Cameroon living in Yaounde in 2003.
