The speech synthesis tool VowelQuest is a piece of software for phonetic/phonological research into vowel systems.
VowelQuest allows the user to pinpoint vowels in the acoustic space, by identifying what constitutes aurally the best fit to each of the vowels in their language. The tool provides as output the list of formant frequencies that correspond to these perceptually identified vowels.
The user 'gropes around' by clicking in the F1-F2 plane, and hears the corresponding sound. The third formant, F3, is modified independently. In order to facilitate the search in the F1-F2 acoustic plane, the user is able to visualize both the latest point that they clicked (current values, corresponding to the sound that is played) and the previous point, so as to be able to track the difference between successive choices.
This software is based on program of Pr. René Carré's , named "Search for the Best Vowel", written in Borland C Builder for specific experiments in speech production research. The program was written anew in the Visual C language, with René Carré's permission. New features have been added to make the tool more readily usable by novice users.
