Examples

1st Example - Simple Figure from Latex compiling
-------------------------------------------------

         Create a figure in PS or PDF by compiling with latex the file:
 
                vtLatex_FigureDemo.tex


2nd Example - Animation from Latex compiling
---------------------------------------------

        Create an animation in PDF by compiling with latex the file:

               vtLatex_AnimationDemo.tex


3rd Example - Simple Figure or Animation compiling from Matlab
--------------------------------------------------------------

        Create a simple Figure or Animation by compiling from Matlab the function
		
		       vtMainVisual.m   
        
		as 
		>> vtMainVisual(VocalTractVecToTime, SWPDForBMP)
		
		where 
		
		1. "VocalTractVecToTime" is the CELL of vocal set up through time. See the codebook of german phonemes in the VocalTract.sty.
		
		For Example
		
			VocalTractVecToTime = ...                           
			{[ 0.5, -2,    1 ,     -2 ,    1,    -1  ,  0,   0,    0,    0],   'i'      ;   
			 [ 0.5, -2,    1 ,     -2 ,    0,     2  ,  0,   0,    0,    0],   'y(\"u)' ; 
			 [-1  , -1,    1 ,     -2 ,    1,    -0.5,  0,   0,    0,    0],   'e'      };
 
        2. "SWPDForBMP" is the string either 'bmp' or 'pdf' to define the output format.
		
			In case of 'bmp' the irfan view programm should be in current path.
			From IrfanView two files are needed to be in current directory
			1. "i_view32.exe" and 
			2. "/plugins/Postscript.dll"
			Free download IrfanView from Irfan Skiljan, E-Mail: irfanview@gmx.net, http://www.irfanview.com
						
			
4th Example - Animation compiling from Matlab with phonemes as an input
------------------------------------------------------------------------        
		
		Create a PDF by compiling from Matlab
		e.g. 
	   
        >> vtQueryVisual('zats')

vo­cal­tract – Visu­alise the vo­cal tract us­ing LaTeX and PStricks

The pack­age en­ables the user to vi­su­alise the vo­cal tract. The vo­cal tract (in the pack­age) is ma­nip­u­lated by a vec­tor of ar­tic­u­la­tion pa­ram­e­ters ac­cord­ing to the S. Maeda model. An­i­ma­tion may be achieved by pro­vid­ing a se­quence of vec­tors over time (e.g., from Mat­lab). A se­quence of vec­tors for cer­tain Ger­man phonemes is em­bed­ded in the pack­age, which al­lows for an­i­ma­tion when no other vec­tor is avail­able.

The pack­age’s graph­ics are pro­duced us­ing pstricks.
