Query Subject:   MARSEC/Waves converter
Submitter Email:  click here to access email

Query:   Dear colleagues,

A colleague of mine is currently working with the Machine-Readable
Spoken English Corpus (MARSEC) for her PhD project. According to the
distributors of the MARSEC CD-Rom, it is possible in principle, by using
a program called "Waves", to obtain phonetic details from the spoken
texts such as fundamental frequency, intensity etc. Unfortunately, this
program is obviously not available anymore. Is there anyone who can give
us a clue to alternative programs suitable for the same purpose (and
easily applicable without the help of a software engineer), or tell us
where "Waves" can still be purchased or downloaded from the web? Any
suggestions will be appreciated.
