Summary:   DEAR COLLEAGUES,

ON MONDAY I POSTED A QUERY ASKING FOR POTENTIAL ALTERNATIVES TO THE WAVES PROGRAM WHICH IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE. IN TOTAL, I RECEIVED SOME FIFTEEN RESPONSES WITH USEFUL AND VALUABLE SUGGESTIONS AND COMMENTS. SINCE QUITE A FEW COLLEAGUES ARE OBVIOUSLY FACING THE SAME PROBLEM, I AM PLEASED TO BE ABLE TO PRESENT THE FOLLOWING LIST OF TOOLS (WHOSE SUITABILITY FOR OUR PUPOSES WE WILL HAVE TO CHECK OUT NEXT WEEK, THOUGH):

PRAAT: WWW.FON.HUM.UVA.NL/PRAAT/ , WWW.PRAAT.ORG

WAVESURFER: WWW.SPEECH.KTH.SE/WAVESURFER/

HTK TOOLKIT: HTTP://HTK.ENG.CAM.AC.UK/

CSL: HTTP://WWW.ARTS.NIE.EDU.SG/ELL/DAVIDD/DDATA/JIPA-VOWELS/INDEX.HTM

SPEECH ANALYZER FROM SIL:
WWW.SIL.ORG/COMPUTING/SPEECHTOOLS/SPEECHANALYZER.HTM

INTERESTINGLY ENOUGH, CHILIN SHIH WROTE THAT SHE GOT A WAVES RELEASE BY WRITING TO ENTROPIC@MCS.COM. SO THERE MIGHT BE SOME HOPE FOR THOSE OF US WHO PREFER WAVES TO OTHER CANDIDATES. BILL FLETCHER SENT ME A FREEWARE PROGRAM CALLED ''SPECTROGRAM'' (VERSION 4.2.8.) WHICH HAS BEEN DEVELOPED BY RICHARD HORNE (RSHORNE@MNSINC.COM)

I WOULD LIKE TO THANK HELMER, MARC, FRED, MATT, GARETH, SIMON, DAVID, MEREDITH, RINA, MIKE, BARBARA, DAN, KEVIN, CHILIN, MACIEJ, JOHN AND BILL FOR THEIR SWIFT REPLIES.

BEST,

JM
