The Vocal Tract LaTeX Package
Dimitrios Ververidis, Daniel Schneider, and Joachim Köhler
Abstract: VocalTract.sty is a package to visualize the vocal tract. Vocal tract is manipulated by a vector of articulation parameters according to S. Maeda model. Animation can be achieved by providing a sequence of vectors over time, e.g. from Matlab©. An embedded sequence of vectors in the VocalTract.sty for certain German phonemes allows for a sequence of phonemes animation when no vector is available.
