Section: New Software and Platforms


Functional Description: JSnoori is written in Java and uses signal processing algorithms developed within the WinSnoori software with the double objective of being a platform independent signal visualization and manipulation tool, and also for designing exercises for learning the prosody of a foreign language. Thus JSnoori currently focuses the calculation of F0, the forced alignment of non native English uttered by French speakers and the correction of prosody parameters (F0, rhythm and energy). Several tools have been incorporated to segment and annotate speech. A complete phonetic keyboard is available, several levels of annotation can be used (phonemes, syllables and words) and forced alignment can exploit pronunciation variants. In addition, JSnoori offers real time F0 calculation which can be useful from a pedagogical point of view. Besides the traditional graphic interface, JSnoori can now be used via scripts written in Jython.
