Publisher's Description

Creates an interesting phonetician analysis of voices and speech:

Praat is a piece of software that helps phoneticians analyze, synthesize, and manipulate speech.

Praat enables you to create a source signal from scratch or from an existing speech signal, but also to create a filter or to extract it from an existing source. You can manipulate (change, adapt) both the source and the filter before doing the actual synthesis, which combines the two.

Praat features and highlights:
  • Speech analysis: spectral analysis (spectrograms), pitch analysis, formant analysis, intensity analysis, jitter, shimmer, voice breaks
  • Cochleagram
  • Excitation pattern
  • Speech synthesis: from pitch, formant, and intensity, articulatory synthesis
  • Listening experiments: identification and discrimination tests
  • Labelling and segmentation: label intervals and time points on multiple tiers
  • Change pitch and duration contours
  • Filtering
  • Learning algorithms: feed forward neural networks
  • Statistics: multidimensional scaling
  • Principal component analysis
  • Graphics: high quality for your articles and thesis
