About load_raw_audio('./raw_data/') in Trigger Word Assignment

I’m confused about the output of the line

load_raw_audio('./raw_data/')

in the Trigger Word assignment. The raw_data folder contain 4 subfolder, but the output only read three of them, which I assume from folders backgorunds, activates, negatives. Here’s the output

([<pydub.audio_segment.AudioSegment at 0x24f7c59bd90>,
  <pydub.audio_segment.AudioSegment at 0x24f7c5a2040>,

What’s happen?

Hi @kelvinn,

The function load_raw_audio () returns only activates, negatives, background. If there is extra material in the raw_data folder, the extra materials are not loaded.

I just noticed that that function is came from td_utils, and defined that way. It’s not clear at the beginning. As a student I feel better if I can see where’s the function came from before call it. Which in this case it’s not because the way it’s imported from td_utils as

from td_utils import *

But hey, that’s a minor things. I can live with that. Thanks @Kic btw.
