I thought Board index ‹ Feedback and Discussion Forum ‹ All Things Audio ‹ Audio Processing was the right place to post but as the warning is insistent on post on the forum board relevant to your operating system, I’m doing just that ; perhaps a moderator can move it if I was right.
I’m recording an audio version of a book and noticed my speech delivery change every 10-20 minutes depending on the text comprehension and my mood. I’m not a voice actor nor an orator so I don’t have the experience which would guide me with such issues. Thus I will need to do things manually by counting the words of a medium paragraph then time my speech to calculate my flow (words per minute).
As engineers have a large experience with speech having created compression algorithms, I assume the algorithm to calculate words is mastered. If indeed words can easily be measured, calculating a certain number of consecutive words then divide it by the time it took to pronounce would not be so difficult.
Could there be a plugin which calculate speech flow, either live or after a track is complete and either manually by [pressing a button / making a selection] or automatically by [setting a time lapse between calculation and how many words to include (in the calculation)] ?
If no such feature is available to Audacity either per-packaged or in a addon/plugin, would you be so kind as to point me to a program which would do such thing to an audio file (the export: wav, ogg, …).
Thank you kindly
I’m using Audacity 1.2.6.
