Editor for this issue: Kevin Burrows
We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.
In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Speech Analysis and Sound File Formats
Message 1: Speech Analysis and Sound File Formats
From: Mario Cal Varela <iamariousc.es>
Subject: Speech Analysis and Sound File Formats
I'd like to compare digital speech samples collected from different
sources, including online radio and samples digitized by myself from
analogical sources. I'm specially interested in fundamental frequency and
formant position, as well as time-related aspects of segments (specifically
VOT and vowel duration). My questions are the following:
What features of the speech signal (and in what ways) may be affected by
the format of speech samples (MP3, VAV, stream audio...)? Are the results
of spectrographic analysis of samples with different file formats and
qualities comparable? Is there any relevant bibliography available on this
Thanks a lot in advance. I'll post a summary.
