Speech Prosody 2006
Measuring pitch is one of the most important but also most difficult tasks in experimental phonetics. It is interesting to study how the difficulties have been solved in the times before the computer was introduced in the phonetic laboratories. In this paper, this is discussed using a number of exhibits of the acoustic-phonetic collection of the Dresden University. There will be a small exhibition of historic devices at the conference Speech Prosody 2006. This paper is intended to accompany the exhibition.
