What is Free Spoken Digit Dataset?

The Free Spoken Digit Dataset, or the Spoken MNIST (Modified National Institute of Standards and Technology database) dataset contains recordings of spoken digits in wav files at 8kHz. The dataset recordings have been trimmed at beginnings and end so that they have near minimal silence. This dataset contains 50 recordings for each 10 digits per each 6 speakers. This dataset in total contains 3000 recordings in English pronunciations.
