Project `Ontsluiting Geluidsdemonstraties'

Main group of demonstrations

This website is the result of a project "Availability of Audio Demonstrations" by the Phonetics group. The aim of this project is to distribute audio demonstrations used in Phonetics courses, so that students can consult these demonstrations for private study. To this end, the necessary software has been developed, and audio demonstrations were digitised, adapted, renewed or made from scratch.
The project is sponsored by the Kwaliteit en Studeerbaarheid fund (1996).

What do you need

In order to use the audio demonstrations, you need the following:
  1. a web-browser capable of JavaScript. Netscape 4.0, Opera 3.60, or MS Internet Explorer 4 are recommended (or later versions).
  2. hardware for audio playback.
  3. software for audio playback. This website works optimally with a stand-alone player program, such as WinAmp, RealPlayer, or Windows Media Player. Please avoid plug-in players inside your web-browser (such as QuickTime Plugin or NetScape Audio Plugin); these players make the browser unstable, and they yield unexpected side effects.
    Most demonstrations are formatted as aiff, aifc or wav. Your web browser should load such files automatically in the player program.
    The necessary hardware and software is already installed on the workstations in the Phonetics computer lab. For other computers we recommend that you verify your configuration and file associations, e.g. with this multimedia test page.
