I am trying to obtain audio data set for a list of english words. The list doesn't have to be extensive (for example the data set can only have 4 or 5 words), but each word should have more than 10 wav files (large repetition with different waveforms).

Any help would be appreciated


Forvo is a crowdsourced effort to create sound files for every word of every language.

The great thing is that a word in a language can have more than 1 sound file.
In fact, you will often find sound files created by males and females from various regions with different accents and voices.

Pronunciations are ranked by clarity, so you can focus only on clear sound files, or on the contrary include difficult-to-understand sound files, depending on your goal.

  • bread: 10 pronunciations from USA, UK, Malaysia
  • anything: 30 pronunciations

This page contains the words that have most pronunciations:

The data can be reused but not for commercial purposes.
