This corpus includes reverberated, noisy speech signals spoken by native French talkers in a lounge and recorded by an 8-microphone device at various angles and distances and in various noise conditions.

Room impulse responses and noise-only signals recorded in various real rooms and homes and baseline speaker localization and enhancement software are also provided.

This corpus stands apart from other corpora in the field by the number of rooms and homes considered and by the fact that it is publicly available at no cost.
