The Sound Privacy database contains recordings of noisy conversations that can be used to analyse which acoustic properties affect the perception of privacy that people have of an environment. The recordings took place at Aalto University (Espoo, Finland) and the International Institute of Information Technology (Hyderabad, India). The chosen scenarios were a crowded cafeteria, a big hall (lobby of a building), a small office with the door open and closed and different locations on the street.
Dialogues between more than 80 speakers have been annonymusly collected. More locations will be added as more samples get collected and analysed.
