    Request For Assistance


    I hope this message finds you well.

    This is my first post here. Thank you in advance for taking the time to read my request.

    I am currently involved with a large project which entails editing a large audio track.

    I have been using two programs, one of them being Audacity (an excellent freeware program).

    I am seeking a way to isolate each word in the track, as my current method is taking a very long time. I realize that there must be a way to automate this process so that I can split the words much quicker. I'm looking for a program that can locate silences between words and to separate them for me to speed up this very tedious task.

    I do know that Audacity has some limited capabilities to do this, but I have not mastered this and so if anyone here can help me, I would greatly appreciate it.

    I appreciate your time, and look forward to any replies.

    The software Total Recorder might be of use to you.

    It will allow you to split audio files with level as a condition, which means you can split at the point where there is silence for more than a defined period of time.;_files.htm#MS

    They offer an evaluation version of the software, and the license is quite cheap relative to other audio editing programs.

    An evaluation copy of Total Recorder has the following limitations: a short portion of noise is inserted into recorded sound about every one minute, you cannot process more than three files during batch processing, and a mark is added to captured images (when recording video). For unlimited usage of the program, you must purchase a Total Recorder license.
    We strongly recommend that prior to purchasing a licence, you download an evaluation version of the program to make sure it runs properly on your PC and meets your requirements.

    I am the thing that goes bump in the night...
