Does anyone know whether there are standard guidelines - or does anyone have recommendations - on how to edit individual lexical sound files (i.e. word pronunciations) for use in an electronic (or ‘talking’) dictionary?
- What is considered a good space of silence to leave before and after the word?
- What would be a good maximum volume, comfortable on the ear?
Really would appreciate some suggestions. Just by the way, I have found Audacity fantastic for my purpose, and wonderfully easy to figure out.
