The figures below display the waveform for the utterance used in the EPG workshop. That utterance is:-

"Kate Wheateron's plays are so famous that some people now write wheateresque. You know, after the playwright wheateron."

The first row of numbers under each panel is the time, from the start of the utterance, in seconds (which can be converted into milliseconds by multiplying by 1000). The second row of numbers is the electropalatogram number (in steps of 10 palatograms, or 50 milliseconds, ie. 5 ms per palatogram).

Additionally, the word boundaries are also indicated using vertical red lines and the words are labelled in the label box below each waveform.
