playing a segment of a speech file

Hello everyone,

                     I would like to know if there is any tool or command line that can play a segment of an audio file. I need to verify the phonemes after the trascriptions produce with the recorded speech. I tried adintool from Julius but it did not exactly do what I wanted. It would be easy if I can play the segment specifying the start time and end time. I also tried SFS but found it a bit difficult to understand and work the tool. Thank you.

Hi ken,

         Thank you very much. I have been using audacity for the past couple of months but never noticed that. I feel so stupid. I would also like to know if there is a tool which can load and play annotations. I would like to test a segment of annotation as well.

Audacity can import 'label' file

Hi Ken,

        I tried audacity to load the label file but it just loaded the first line. I have my phonetic transcriptions of an audio file like the following:

000000 1000000 pau -10.743142

1000000 2000000 hh -10.982402

2000000 2600000 ih -8.687681

2600000 4100000 k -18.661600

4100000 4700000 aa -9.374283

4700000 5500000 l -7.819271

I tried to load this kind of file in audacity. I actually want to verify the phonemes from its audio file. So if I specify say I want to play the phoneme from 2600000 to 4100000 then it should play k. I would prefer a command line rather than a tool. Can Sox play segments like I want? Thank you

don't know, did you try?

You could create a script using HCopy to copy the audio segment you want and play it using aplay or some other command line audio player. 

See chapter 17.4 of the HTK manual.
