RAVDESS dataset

What is RAVDESS Dataset?

The Ryerson Audio-Visual Database of Emotional Speech and Song Dataset (Ravdees) consists of 7356 files database (total size: 24.8 GB). Two lexically-matched phrases are vocalised in a neutral North American dialect by 24 professional actors (12 female, 12 male). There are calm, happy, sad, angry, terrified, surprise, and disgust expressions in speech, and there are calm, happy, sad, angry, and frightening expressions in music.
