Analyzing speech & possibilities of its modification
I´ve just been added to the list. Let me present myself: I´m a psychology student at the university of Lake Constance, in the south of Germany. I´ve started for some time with a research dealing with prosody and especially with pitch variations. I´ve been looking for better ways of analyzing prosody, being able to differentiate loudness and 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.
My problem has been the confusion between loudness and pitch. Is there a program which makes this distinction possible?
Another aim I have 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". Does there exist such program that shows the subjects how their prosody is represented on a computer screen while they speak and thus, how they could modify it?
Many thanks and all the best,
