Do you use a basic speech analysis computer program for doing research, or
for teaching phonetics or psycholinguistics?

If so, we'd like to request that you take a few minutes for a brief survey,
which can be found at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/LINA.

As part of an NIH grant aimed at making speech research more accessible to
students and scientists outside the field of linguistics, our team is
developing enhancements for some widely used open-source speech analysis
programs. In particular, we aim to include automatic procedures for
certain types of measurements, such as voicing lag and vowel space. To do
so, we would like to find out what programs are currently used and what
functionality is most valued.

Enhancements would take the form of 'add-ons', or 'plug-ins' to the
open-source programs, and would be readily available to the academic public.

Our team includes linguists, speech pathologists, and computer scientists
at the University of Cincinnati, Northeastern University, and Speech
Technology and Applied Research Corporation of Bedford, MA.

Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics
