Dear Shelley, Brian,
Sorry it took me all that time to react. As Brian rightly pointed out, the conversion may be constrained by the actual content of your CHAT files. 

Both Chatter and PhonTalk are available from:
http://talkbank.org/software/

First, run your CHAT files through Chatter (you need to select the folder which contains these files). 

If your files do not 'pass' the Chatter conversion, it's that they are somehow incompatible with the CHAT conventions. Chatter would then list all of the errors encountered; once these are fixed, you are ready for the conversion into Phon, via PhonTalk. 

Please let me know in case you need more help with the process. 

With best regards,
Yvan

I am not sure how well this will work, because some of the aspects of the conversion are still under development, but that may be possible.  I would give this a try first.  Perhaps Yvan can comment on whether there are any reasons this will not yet work.

>> I am writing on behalf of a student who is working on her thesis on phonetic factors of L2 speech and language development.  She would like to use PHON for her transcription needs.  Is there a way to get clips from videos that are linked to CHAT files from CLAN into PHON?  or would it be better/easier to go from CLAN to PRAAT to PHON?  She wants to use line numbers from the CHAT files to locate words of interest for transcription in PHON.  Once located, she wants to get the words into PHON as easily as possible.
