Re: Spectrogram of formant transition

I highly recommend the use of SFS
(http://www.phon.ucl.ac.uk/resource/sfs/) which, in my opinion, makes
beautiful spectrograms on its default settings (use the wide-band analysis).

Other things to remember for pretty pictures:

1) you want ultra-clean recordings, prefereably made in an anechoic
chamber. Poor microphones and poor recording conditions will do you no

2) male speech tends to look better than female speech

3) some speakers look (and of course sound!) better than others.
