General Information

Edinburgh Speech Tools provides a set of executables, which offer access to speech tools functionality in the form of a stand alone program. As far as possible, the programs follow a common format in terms of assumptions, defaults and processing paradigms.

The following are generally true of most speech tools programs.

  • Arguments to functions can be specified in any order on the command line. Most programs can take multiple input files, which by default have no preceding argument.
  • Output by default is to standard out. The -o flag can be used to specify an output file.
  • Often programs can read many formats of input file. Wherever possible, this is done automatically. If this can't be done, the -itype flag can be used to specify the input file format.
  • The output file format is specified by -otype.

Specific documentation for each executable is given on separate pages:
