FAVE toolkits and NordFA prototype

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.

The NordFA prototype is also included in LG-FAVE. Currently, the prototype works for Danish and Swedish. Danish is not particularly accurate, but Swedish is. The process for adaptation – along with accuracy metrics for Swedish – is described in our 2021 article, which we have uploaded here. NB, this is unsupported software.


DOI As of v1.1.3 onwards, releases from this repository will have a DOI associated with them through Zenodo. The DOI for the current release is 10.5281/zenodo.22281.

If using LG-FAVE and/or the NordFA prototype, please cite the original creators and the adaptors:

Rosenfelder, I., Fruehwald, J., Evanini, K. & Yuan, J. (2011). FAVE
(Forced Alignment and Vowel Extraction) Program Suite [computer program].

Young, N. & McGarrah, M. (2021). Forced alignment for Nordic languages: Rapidly
constructing a high-quality prototype. Nordic Journal of Linguistics.


As indicated above, this is unsupported software. One can, however, usually find user support for installing and using the FAVE toolkits at the FAVE Users' Group.
