Audio Annotation with Praat and Python
March 27 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Praat is best known as a standard tool for doing phonetics with computers, but is also a terrific open-source tool for any type of audio annotation. Quick to download and easy to use, Praat’s TextGrid tool provides users with several options for multiple layers of annotation, allowing the user to be as specific as is needed when annotating audio for any type of research. This workshop will introduce participants to Praat’s TextGird annotation system, and provide useful information on performing manual audio annotation. This workshop will also introduce TextGridTools (Buschmeier, H. & Włodarczak, M., 2013), an open-source toolkit for Python that allows users to easily import and navigate their TextGrid annotations as Python objects. This toolkit makes analyzing your annotations with Python very straightforward. Combine these two tools is a great way to annotate your audio data and manage it well for analysis. This workshop is part of the GCDI Sound Series #GCDISound.
