Is anybody aware of an app that will show vowel formants in real time (or more or less)? I know there are apps that will give you a spectrogram, but I can't read the output quickly or accurately enough. I've also now seen this previous question and one of the apps mentioned in the answer does do something similar (it plots vowels on a vowel quadrilateral) but the developers say that getting it to identify formants is "very much a work in progress".

  • Have you checked out WaveSurfer? It's not real-real time, but if you're going to be working with short clips it should get the job down. – madprogramer Mar 2 at 8:50

    Thanks, I had a look but I find it harder to read than Praat and it's not much closer to real time. – rchivers Mar 4 at 5:56

Praat can do the exact job.

Dotted red lines represent formants, but they are not in real time.

    Thanks - not real time but seems to be the best option. – rchivers Mar 4 at 5:57
