The first release of the SPADE project OSF data repository is now live and can be accessed at https://osf.io/4jfrm/
In this first release, we make available acoustic measures for sibilants and durations and static formants for vowels, for 39 corpora (~2200 hours of speech analysed from ~8600 speakers), anonymised where required, with information about dataset generation.
