<html><div style='background-color:'><DIV>Dear all,</DIV> <DIV>&nbsp;</DIV> <DIV>Ive just been added to the list. Let me present myself: Im a psychology student at the university of Lake Constance, in the south of Germany. Ive started for some time with a research dealing with prosody and especially with pitch variations. Ive been looking for better ways of analyzing prosody, being able to differentiate loudness and&nbsp;pitch (and thus, pitch variations). So far it has been possible to record speech by using a program called Creative Wave Studio. The resulting data was then trascribed into statistical data using Matlab. </DIV> <DIV>My problem has been the confusion between loudness and pitch. Is there a program which makes this distinction possible?</DIV> <DIV>&nbsp;</DIV> <DIV>Another aim I have&nbsp;in mind is finding another program which should serve as a feedback system, in order to train subjects (such as, for example, actors) to produce more variations in pitch and thus be perceived to have a more "lively speech melody".&nbsp;&nbsp;Does there exist such program that shows the subjects how their prosody is represented on a computer screen&nbsp;while they speak and thus, how they could modify it?</DIV> <DIV>&nbsp;</DIV> <DIV>Many thanks and all the best,</DIV> <DIV>&nbsp;</DIV> <DIV>Stephen Crawcour</DIV></div><br clear=all><hr> </html>
