Recently developed, relatively inexpensive systems make digital speech analysis available to many teachers, clinicians, and researchers who have not had access to previous systems. Addressing these prospective users, we survey five microcomputer programs and two dedicated devices for recording, editing, and analyzing speech. We review the capabilities, requirements, and user interface of each system. We recommend considerations for prospective users and for developers of the next generation of such programs and devices. Finally, we briefly survey seven additional systems.
