Praat is a widely used general purpose tool to analyze and manipulate digital speech data. It was (and still is) developed by Paul Boersma and David Weenink at the Institute of Phonetic Sciences, University of Amsterdam8.23. Although the first aim of Praat was to give students and scientists of Phonetics a handy tool for manipulating speech data and for creating stimuli for perception experiments, the Praat tool very quickly evolved into a general purpose speech tool that may be used for segmentation and labeling as discussed above.
