Abstract

The Praat acoustics program (Boersma, 2001) is powerful freeware that is widely used bybehavioral scientists working with digital sound. This article describes GSU Praat Tools, a script package that helps simplify and automate such work. The routines use Praat's scripting language to create new menus and commands within the existing interface, and can operate either on individual files or in batch mode. The new functions facilitate selecting, displaying, editing, filtering, and otherwise modifying sounds, quantifying acoustic features, and saving results in text-based data files. The package includes an installation script and user's manual, and is available free from psyvoso.googlepages.com/softwaredownload.
