TAPEINFO — Contents of vox-tapes, segmentation and noise level

Lists the contents of raw-data tapes or of "compressed" high-density tapes and optionally tests time series for clipped amplitudes. The gereated lists include the following information: (1) the tape-name and volume-serial-number, (2) the contents of the identification record, (3) timecode, (4) artifact codes, (5) manually derived segmentation tables, if any, and, (6) automatically generated segmentation tables.

            09 DEMO Examples that illustrate program function
            - TANA:     Name of the input tape ("NO" means that
                        DSN-name will not be checked)
            - NREC = 0: All files
                   = n: The first "n" files are to be processed
            - NBIT = n: Number of bits used in A/D-conversion (default=16)
            - IBM  = 0: Input data are stored in X86/X64-mode   (little endian)
                   = 1: Input data are stored in IBM/SPARC-mode (big endian)
            - PROT = 0: Table of contents
                   = 1: List of time codes and artifacts
                   = 2: same as (1) plus segmentation table
                   = 3: Analysis of clipped amplitudes
            - PLOT < 0: Segmentation tables ar written to unit LPRT
                   = 0: No plots
                   = 1: Distribution of pause duration
                   = 2: Distribution of utterance duration
                   = 3: Distribution of energy per second
                   = 4: Distribution of energy per syllable
                   = 5: Distribution of mean vocal pitch
                   = 6: Distribution of F0 amplitude
                   = 7: Distribution of F0-6db-bandwidth
                   = 8: Distribution of F0 contour
            - LG30 = u: Logical unit number of input file   (valid: 30-45)
            - LPRT = p: Logical unit number of plot device  (valid: 6, 46-96)
            - DEMO: Contents of a vox-tape ("virtual IBM-3490 tape")

Fig. 18: Comparison of mean vocal pitch amplitude in healthy male speakers (upper half) versus healthy female speakers (lower half) computed for the experimental condition of "reading out loud emotionally neutral text". The pronounced deviations between the 2 distributions indicate that the male - female differences in mean vocal pitch encompass not just the 1-octave shift in frequency (Fig. 19) but other characteristics as well.
