Thus, the present computer software is designed to offer a package for the analysis of the speech in phonetics. Thus, a study of sounds of human speech is offered through this computer software. The analysis of the speech in phonetics will be concerning with the physical properties of the speech sounds or signs, where it is particularly concerning with the physiological production, acoustic properties, auditory perception and neurophysiological status. Thus, the present concerned computer software is designed to run on a wide range of operating systems, in which people can see the its compatibility with the various version including, Unix, Mac, Linux and Microsoft Windows (like Windows 95, 98, NT4, ME, 2000, XP, Vista, 7, 8). Also, the present program is also supporting the speech synthesis, including articulatory synthesis.
As such, the present concerned computer software is developed and offered from the top developers (authors) Paul Boersma and David Weenink from the University of Amsterdam. And in its versions history it can notable that in the year 1995 its version 3.1 was firstly released by its developers, and then from 2001 to 2015 in the various years, the various other version have been developed and released.
Thus, the present computer software which is offering various services for recognizing the human voices, it is also offering its works and functionality in the various particular sectors, thus, in its offering functionality, this software is offering for the speech analysis, where spectral analysis, pitch analysis, formant analysis, intensity analysis, jitter, shimmer, voice breaks, cochleagram, etc. are offered. Moreover, in speech synthesis, it is offering functioning from pitch, formant and intensity, articulatory synthesis and Klatt acoustic synthesis. In listening experiments, it is offering identification and discrimination tests. Also in Labeling and segmentation, it is offering label intervals and time points on multiple tiers, use of phonetic alphabets and use sound files up to 2 gigabytes. Similarly, in the Speech manipulation, Learning Algorithms, Statistics, Graphics, Progammability, Portability and Configurability, etc. the present computer software is offering great support. And also, notably, this computer software is offered as licensed under GNU General Public License- GPL and also this science software is written in C, C++. And also notably, as it is made open for public and the Phonetic and Speech scientists from the worldwide, the present software is offered in the English language.
