PresenterPro: A tool for recording, indexing and processing prompted speech with Praat


Dellwo, Volker (2016). PresenterPro: A tool for recording, indexing and processing prompted speech with Praat. In: Phonetik & Phonologie, Ludwig-Maximiliams Universität München, 13 October 2016 - 14 October 2016, 30-33.

Abstract

Praat (www.praat.org) is a powerful tool for a wide variety of speech analysis and processing tasks. When it comes to recording speech, however, it lacks some fundamental functions that allow a user to prompt a reader with a written list of words or sentences (henceforth: speech prompts) on a screen and index the prompted recordings for further processing. PresenterPro - a Praat plug-in - fills this gap. It (a) prompts a reader to read utterances from a screen, (b) automatically indexes the recorded speech prompts in a Praat TextGrid and (c) extracts all recorded speech prompts into individual files. It thus offers an efficient solution for recording large lists of speech prompts. The present paper describes the plug-in and discusses in which situations it is particularly useful.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
