   ENS 207 G  English Dialects
Audio editing programs

For those who choose the second option in Assignment 3, sending in your own edited recording, here is a quick How-To overview.

I suggest you use Audacity, a very good open-source program from SourceForge which you can download free. See the introductory video below.

Students in my Phonetics II course, Autumn 2009, will already have downloaded Praat, which is primarily a phonetics analysis program. However you can easily use Praat to edit audio clips for the Dialects assignments, and I include below a quick screen capture on how to do this.
