I am new to Praat and tryingt to get the selected region in Praat script using the the amplitude values i.e. when amplitude gets larger than a threshold then I should start capturing the region and stop when it falls down.
What I know is that:
There is something called Shimmer (amplitude perturbation) which measures the difference in amplitude from cycle to cycle. Once again, this is a useful measure in speech pathology, as pathological voices will often have a higher shimmer than healthy voices (although again, both healthy and unhealthy voices will have some shimmer).
I have also read this link but couldn't get anything to measure the shimmer in praat script.
Someone please guide me in this regard.
To TextGriddata and in the mean time we are working on another approach to do the job.
