Many speech researchers (linguists, psycholinguists, speech therapists) who work with speech perception still struggle to prepare their data collection tests mostly due to limitations as regards programming skills and knowledge of scripting languages. Concerned with this scenario and methodological constraints, we developed an open source application software ( that enables researchers to design not only speech perception tests, but also perceptual training tasks with immediate feedback. The objective of this paper is to show some of the main features of the software and to highlight its user-friendliness.
