Hi all,

I have been working on the automatic detection of nasalization using knowledge based acoustic parameters for sometime. Since, one of the possible applications of such a system can be to detect hypernasality in a person's speech by just looking at the acoustics, I would like to test my algorithm on hypernasal speech and find out if it is able to separate hypernasal speakers from speakers with normal speech.

In this respect, I wanted to know if anyone knows of a standard database of speech recorded from normal and hypernasal speakers which I can use for research purposes? It would be fabulous if this database is transcribed and/or has nasalance scores for each of the speakers.

Thanks in advance
