Item Extractor

This is a script that extracts items coded on an interval tier. It extracts labeled items in the tier and saves them as a WAV file with the label as the file name.

  1. To run this script, open the textgrid and sound file in Praat.
  2. Then, highlight the relevant textgrid and soundfile.
  3. Go to the File menu and choose Open script… You will get a dialogue box with the script in it.
  4. Specify the tier number where you have labeled your items.
  5. Specify the name of the file (the script will save the output file in the same directory as the script).
  6. Press ok and the script should do the rest of the work.
  7. All of the new sound files will be saved in the same directory as the script.
