The Voice Again user interface consists of four main areas: the Playlist, Track
View, Speed and Pitch controls and Audio Settings.
The Playlist (#1) provides a list of audio files that have been loaded into the
Voice Again project. You can add any number of audio files to the playlist.
Clicking on an item in this list will load the audio information into the Track
The Track View (#2) provides you with a graphical view of the audio file. It
provides a timeline of the recording as well as a way of navigating and playing
back the audio. Zoom controls allow you to zoom-in to increase the detail of the
graphics for even more accurate navigation.
Navigation controls allow you to quickly move to different parts of the audio.
Annotations show up as graphic markers in the Track View. You can add text to
the annotations to assist in navigation.
Once you have navigated to a certain location in the file, you can play back the
audio either as single-shot or repeat. Combining repeated playback with the
speed control allow you to listen and analyze the audio efficiently.
Speed and Pitch Controls
The Speed and Pitch Controls (#3) provide you with tools to change the speed or
pitch of a recording. Slowing down a recording is especially useful for
carefully analyzing audio for details that would not be as easy at normal speeds.
Speeding up a recording is useful in quickly skimming audio to save time. Pitch
controls can be helpful for raising or lowering a voice for clarity.
You can slow playback of recordings as much as a factor of 10X (10% normal).
Typically slowing a voice recording by 2X (50% normal) to 4X (25% normal) can be
very useful for listening to details. You can speed recordings as much as a
factor of 6X (600% normal) to gloss over recordings in order to save time.
Pitch can be modified by a factor of plus or minus two octaves. This provides
you with a wide range of pitch shifting. You can also add Formant Correction
option to maintain a more natural sound to the voice when shifting the pitch.
The Audio Settings (#4) provides global audio volume and pan control. The volume
control adjusts how loud Voice Again will output sound to your speakers. The pan
control adjusts the relative left-to-right output for stereo recordings.
