WaveSurfer is an Open Source tool for sound visualization and manipulation. It has been designed to suit both novice and advanced users. WaveSurfer has a simple and logical user interface that provides functionality in an intuitive way and which can be adapted to different tasks.

It can be used as a stand-alone application for a wide range of tasks in speech research and education. Typical applications are speech/sound analysis and sound annotation/transcription. WaveSurfer can also serve as a platform for more advanced/specialized applications. This is accomplished either through extending the WaveSurfer application with new custom plug-ins or by embedding WaveSurfer visualization components in other applications.

Here are some key features of "WaveSurfer":

· Multi-platform - Linux, Windows 95/98/NT/2K/XP, Macintosh, Sun Solaris, HP-UX, FreeBSD, and SGI IRIX

· Customizable - users can create their own configurations. Localization support.
· Extensible - new functionality can be added through a plugin architecture
