The Main View
The Voice Again user interface consists of four main areas: the Playlist, Track View, Speed and Pitch controls and Audio Settings.
Voice Again main Screen
Playlist
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 View.

Track View
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.

Audio Settings
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.
