    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;The dataset contains audio recordings (lossless WAV) of 11 young children (age M=4.9 years old; 5 females, 6 males).&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Recordings include:&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;ul&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;free speech (retelling a picture book, ‘Frog, Where Are You?’ by Mercer Mayer)&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;repeating 5 pre-defined short sentences (like 'the horse is in the stable')&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;telling the numbers from 1 to 10&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;/ul&gt;

&lt;p&gt;The recordings are in English and the participants include both native and non-native speakers.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Each sample is recorded from 3 sources:&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;ul&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;A studio-grade microphone (Rode NT1-A)&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;A portable microphone (Zoom H1)&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;The two front microphones of the Aldebaran NAO robot&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;/ul&gt;

&lt;p&gt;(note that, due to technical issues, a few (sample/microphone) combinations are missing).&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt; &lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;For the free-speech recording, a manual segmentation of the utterances is provided as well.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
