Re: ANNOUNCEMENT: ShATR - A Corpus for Auditory Scene Analysis

Unfortunately, a few errors were made in the announcement of this corpus.

First of all I would like to stress that 'shorten' by Tony Robinson is *not*
public-domain! And neither are the findsegs and sndextrc tools. Shorten is
provided under the following license:
