AKUSTYK for Praat. For those who are interested in the acoustic analysis of speech, this website is a must. Designed by Bartek Plichta (PhD, Michigan State University), Akustyk piggy-backs Paul Boersma’s Praat program, helping researchers to record their measurements as they go. The benefits? Researchers will see increased speed and accuracy in their measurements, which will be conveniently organized for them. Students will have the opportunity to see vowels plotted as they go, helping to train their ears to recognize fronter, backer, higher, and lower productions. Plus, sign up on the mailing list, and Bartek will send you alerts when new versions are available. He also provides excellent technological reviews so that your grant money is well spent.
