AuToBI is a tool for the automatic analysis of Standard American English prosody. It is based largely on work described my dissertation -- Automatic Detection and Classification of Prosodic Events.

This page will host code, packages and models as they become available.

AuToBI is free software, released under the Apache 2.0 license. AuToBI is delivered as-is.

AuToBI is a java toolkit that hypothesizes pitch accents and phrase boundaries. The toolkit includes an acoustic feature extraction frontend, and a classification backend that is based on LIBLINEAR.

The best way to get the most current version of AuToBI is through github, or cloning directly:

git clone or git clone git://

In addition to the github repository, milestone releases are available here.

Included Utilities -- There are three classes used within AuToBI which can be run independently from the prosodic annotation pipe.

Syllabifier -- Construct acoustic based psedosyllabification of a wave file.
PitchExtractor -- Extract a pitch track (Hz) from a wave file.
IntensityExtractor -- Extract an intensity track (dB) from a wave file.
