Label files used by HTK/HTS and related software packages represent a similar data structure as a Praat TextGrid object. The scripts in this plugin allow conversions to and from label files and TextGrid objects.

Multiple levels within a label file are mapped to multiple interval tiers within a TextGrid object; while multiple alternatives result in the creation of as many different TextGrid objects.

In the conversion from TextGrid to label files, only non-empty labels are taken into account. Label files need a specified start and end time in each line in order to be properly converted.


Install using CPrAN:

cpran install htklabel

You can download an archive of the latest version for manual installation, but you’ll have to also manually install the dependencies yourself. You can manually install the plugin just like any other Praat plugin.
