ECoS/Win - Experiment Generator & Controller for Windows
ECoS/Win is a unique way to quickly set up and run listening tests on PCs without writing application programs. The system works on all multi-media PCs running Microsoft Windows 98, 95, NT, or 3.1x. Just by filling in a series of ECoS/Win forms, you can quickly specify which audio files you want to use and define the set of possible responses. ECoS/Win will then execute the test on your command, faithfully sequencing and timing your test, displaying response alternatives onscreen, presenting signals in the specified sequence, recording the listener's responses automatically and saving these to disk. To save even more time, the stimulus sets, block definitions, etc., can be imported and quickly edited to define subsequent listening experiments.
ENHANCE: Windows Tool for Enhancement of Speech Signals
UCL Enhance is a program for the enhancement of the intelligibility of speech recordings. The program incorporates a number of standard techniques for manipulating the overall amplitude of the signal and for the removal of steady-state additive noise. However, the program is unusual in its ability to detect and enhance selective regions of the speech signal based on their phonetic properties. UCL Enhance is a simple application that is complete in itself but which is also designed to be compatible with the Speech Filing System (SFS) tools for speech research.
