hello all-

i am attempting to clean up my labels, but i have no experince in this. i currently have about 150 utterances in a limited domain synth i made in festival. i was trying to use 'praat' to no avail.

i can get wavesurfer to open a wav file, of course, but am stumped as to how i superimpose the corresponding lab file? obviously i am new at this and don't want to waste anyone's time, but any help is greatly appreciated. are there any tutorials or anything that anyone might be aware of?


thank you,

jeffrey lorien

Do you know what format your label files have?
Maybe you could include the content of a short label file in a message, assuming they are in text format.

this is what a sample .lab file consists of:

separator ;
nfields 1
#
0.42000 26 pau
0.51500 26 b
0.77000 26 ae
0.89500 26 k
0.97000 26 ah
1.01500 26 v
1.05500 26 dh
1.10500 26 ax
1.21000 26 hh
1.40500 26 eh
1.47500 26 d
1.69500 26 pau
3.00000 26 pau

thank you,

Hi,

The lab file should be in the same directory as the corresponding wav file.
In Festival they are are in different subdirectories, namely lab/ and wav/.

A possible workaround would be to move all lab files to the wav drirectory, remove the
now empty lab directory and make a symbolic link (since lab directory is needed
by a number of Festival scripts):

$ ln -s wav lab

Now opening file foo.wav in Wavesurfer in the WAVES transcription mode
will open the corresponding lab file as well.

BTW: There seems to be a lab-related bug: If I cut a piece of the sound away (and do not
touch the lab in any other way) and save it, the program saves the modified wav file
but the modification of the lab file probably is not registered, since the modified lab file
is not saved!

regards,
Nicholas

You should not have to move the label files, just specify their location using Properties | Trans1 | Label file path.

I'll have a look at the cut-bug...

Today's relase fixes the problem with label files not getting saved when saving everything after doing a cut operation.
