WaveSurfer - An Open Source Speech Tool

Kåre Sjölander, Jonas Beskow

Centre for Speech Technology, KTH, Stockholm, Sweden

In the speech technology research community there is an increasing trend to use open source solutions. We present a new tool in that spirit, WaveSurfer, which has been developed at the Centre for Speech Technology at KTH. It has been designed for tasks such as viewing, editing, and labeling of audio data. WaveSurfer is built around a small core to which most functionality is added in the form of plug-ins. The tool has been designed to work on most common platforms and with the aims that it should be easy to configure and extend. WaveSurfer is provided as open source, under the GPL license with the explicit goal that the speech community jointly will improve and expand its scope and capabilities.
