FAVE toolkits

This is a repository for the FAVE-Align and FAVE-extract toolkits. The first commit here represents the toolkit as it was available on the FAVE website as of October 21, 2013. The extractFormants code in the JoFrhwld/FAAV repository represents an earlier version of the code.


Current documentation for installation and usage available on the github wiki.

FAVE website

The interactive FAVE website hosted at the University of Pennsylvania is no longer available. The DARLA site hosted by Dartmouth can be used to run the Montreal Forced Aligner, and FAVE-extract.


You can find user support for installing and using the FAVE toolkits at the FAVE Users' Group.
