Segmentation and Labeling

Praat is a tool, not a labeling system. It allows you to define as many labeling tiers as you want but the content of these layers is up to you (see section `Annotation Methods' above). Praat reads most standard speech signal files8.24 and write the results of the segmentation and labeling into a proprietary format called `TextGrid' which is fortunately a readable plain text file.
