Subject: Waves Alternatives

Dear colleagues,

on Monday I posted a query asking for potential alternatives to the Waves
program which is no longer available. In total, I received some fifteen
responses with useful and valuable suggestions and comments. Since quite a
few colleagues are obviously facing the same problem, I am pleased to be
able to present the following list of tools(whose suitability for our
puposes we will have to check out next week, though):

Praat: www.fon.hum.uva.nl/praat/ , www.praat.org

Wavesurfer: www.speech.kth.se/wavesurfer/

HTK toolkit: http://htk.eng.cam.ac.uk/

CSL: http://www.arts.nie.edu.sg/ell/davidd/data/jipa-vowels/index.htm

Speech Analyzer from SIL:
www.sil.org/computing/speechtools/speechanalyzer.htm

Interestingly enough, Chilin Shih wrote that she got a Waves release by
writing to entropicmcs.com. So there might be some hope for those of us who
prefer Waves to other candidates. Bill Fletcher sent me a freeware program
called "Spectrogram" (Version 4.2.8.) which has been developed by Richard
Horne (rshornemnsinc.com)

I would like to thank Helmer, Marc, Fred, Matt, Gareth, Simon, David,
Meredith, Rina, Mike, Barbara, Dan, Kevin, Chilin, Maciej, John and Bill for
their swift replies.

Best,

JM
