EGG wavegram - Python source code

send mail DeutschEnglish
The wavegram provides an intuitive means for quickly assessing vocal fold contact phenomena and their variation over time. Vocal fold contacting and de-contacting appears here as a sequence of events rather than single incidents, taking place over a certain period of time, and changing with pitch, loudness and register. Wavegrams document systematic phenomena, indicating subtle changes of the vocal fold oscillatory regime. - see wikipedia.
