Create the Phoneme Time Track File

IDOL Speech Server stores phoneme time track information in an .fmd file. You process an individual audio file to create a phoneme time track file. You can then search this file, or combine time track files for multiple audio files into a single file, which you can then search.

To create a phoneme time track file for an audio file

For example:

http://localhost:13000/action=AddTask&Type=CreateFMD&File=C:/myData/Speech.wav&Lang=ENUS-pm&Out=Speech1.fmd

This action uses port 13000 to instruct IDOL Speech Server, which is located on the local machine, to process the Speech.wav file to produce the Speech1.fmd time track file, using the ENUS-pm language pack.

This action returns a token. You can use the token to:

To combine multiple phoneme time track files

  1. Create a list that contains the names of the individual time track files to combine. Each entry in the list must be on a separate line, and must consist of label and file name pairs separated by a semicolon. The label corresponds to the name to give to the file, and the file names correspond to the full path of the files to be combined. For example:

    Label1;filename1
    Label2;filename2
    ...
    

    For more information about IDOL Speech Server's list manager, see Create and Manage Lists.

  2. Send an AddTask action to IDOL Speech Server, and set the following parameters:

    Type The task name. Set to CombineFMD.
    ListFile

    The list that specifies the individual time track files to combine.

    ListPath The path to the directory that contains the phoneme time track files.
    FileOut The name of the combined phoneme time track file to produce.

For example:

http://localhost:13000/action=AddTask&Type=CombineFMD&ListFile=ListManager/fmdList&ListPath=C:\PHRASESEARCH\fmd&FileOut=myData.fmd

This action uses port 13000 to instruct IDOL Speech Server, which is located on the local machine, to combine the individual phoneme time track files specified in the fmdList list to produce the single file myData.fmd.

This action returns a token. You can use the token to:
