Wavesurfer is a sound editing and phonetics program written in tcl/tk. It works in Puppy, and I have packed it into a tar.gz file (Pupget is a bit too complicated for me). It installed OK as an alien package. It installs a directory to /usr/lib/.

The program is good, thanks! Cool

BTW, could you give me some examples on how to use it to learn a second language?

And do I need to setup anything to use the recording function?

For recording, there is an issue with some versions of puppy. You press the red button and get : failed to set the number of channels. just go to transform/convert and set stereo or 4 channels. then it works.

If anyone can find a solution to this mystery I'd be very happy.

To use it for learning a language, you could for instance analyse your own pronunciation. there are lots of visualisation aids. right click to add panes or make new configurations.

I use it to practice the french nonaspirated plosives, by listening to parts of my own speech (you could pinpoint the exact voice onset .

You can also get your intonation curves and compare with a native speaker's.

As with almost all freeware, there is little documentation.

I'm trying to learn to use it myself....

Let me know if you come up with good ideas for use.

bon chance!
