An interactive Segmentation and Labelling Automatic Module (SLAM), especially developed for Windows-based Personal Computers, is described. The system is extremely user-friendly and it was designed with the aim of supporting speech scientists in assessing the very heavy and time-consuming task of segmenting a big amount of speech material such as that caused by the tremendous spread of new and always bigger speech data-bases. The system, which is based on the Multi-Level Segmentation theory, was built using Microsoft C++ and Windows 3.1 SDK software (*), and runs preferably on Intel 386/486-based personal computers running DOS 5.00 or higher and equipped with VGA and SuperVGA boards.

Keywords: Multi-Level segmentation, Windows. (*) The following are trademarks of their respective companies: Intel 386/486 (Intel Corp.) Microsoft, DOS, Windows 3.1, MS SDK, MS C++ , MDI (Microsoft Corp.), PC-AT, VGA (IBM Corp.), Oros (Oros Inc.).
