praat(1) doing phonetics by computer




This manual page documents briefly the praat command.

This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

praat is a program for speech analysis and synthesis. Through its graphical interface, several speech analysis functionalities are available: spectrograms, cochleograms, and pitch and formant extraction. Articulatory synthesis, as well as synthesis from pitch, formant, and intensity are also available. Other features are segmentation, labelling using the phonetic alphabet, and computation of statistics. Praat is configurable and extensible through its own scripting language and has provisions for communicating with other programs.
