       praat - 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.


       praat has an on-line documentation; just launch praat and look at the Help menu entry.

       For further information, see the Praat website ( A very good
       Beginner's Guide is available at
