Analysis of acoustic waveforms is a complex process that is necessary to understand how different subjects produce speech. This project looks to support a study of the characteristics of medial stop consonants in speech. It will help researchers understand why and how such stop consonants are produced. The current process used for analysis is primarily manual and the steps must be repeated for every waveform analyzed. Speech analysis can require looking at thousands of waveforms, so this analysis process needs to be expedited. We created a software program based system to relieve the researcher of some of the analysis burden.
