The Phoneme Aligner is an adaptation of EasyAlign for Hebrew. The work was done together with Evyatar Cohen, an MA student at Tel Aviv University.

It is not 100% accurate yet, however, it is definitely a huge step forward and serves as a boost for students and researchers, who can manually correct it. 

We invite you to download the Kit for installation as a plugin for Praat softwareBefore installation, one should make sure that Praat is closed.
