I have been investigating automatic recognition of alarm sounds, which form a distinctive and important set of sounds. Here are some the examples I have collected:
|Car/truck horns||horn 1||horn 2||horn 3||horn 4||horn 5||horn 6|
|Electronic telephone rings||phone 1||phone 2||phone 3||phone 4||phone 5||phone 6|
|Palm pilot alarms||palm alarm 1||palm alarm 2||palm alarm 3||palm alarm 4||palm alarm 5||palm alarm 6|
|Sirens||siren 1||siren 2||siren 3||siren 4||siren 5||siren 6|
The 'palm alarms' I recorded myself. Most of the rest I got from searching for sound examples on the web. Some of the telephone rings were recorded by my former colleague Victor Stein.
