Subject:  Praat phonetic analysis software


A very long time ago, I posted a query to the list asking for software
that would record sounds and produce spectrograms. Several people wrote
back recommending Praat, a program available from the website

http://www.fon.hum.uva.nl/praat/

Paul Boersma and David Weenink are making this program available. I was
not able to find time to even experiment with it until recently, and now
that I have, I'm sorry I didn't do so sooner. It's a fabulous program,
with many options that outstrip my modest needs of the moment (being
able to record sounds and share phonetic analyses with my students). I
thought at first that Praat would be too hard to learn, but its makers
have gone out of their way to make it user-friendly.

I'm sorry to have taken so long to report on my query; I encourage
anyone looking for software like this to investigate Praat's terrific
capabilities. And thanks to Paul and Dave for the fantastic work they've done!
