WYRED Project: Milestones

WYRED Project: Milestones

Recording sessions commenced!

As 2016 draws to a close, we’re pleased to say we’ve had a very successful term. 30 participants have now completed both recording sessions and received their £25 gift voucher reward!

We’ve also been making good use of our bespoke West Yorkshire map by plotting our participant pairings across Wakefield, Kirklees and Bradford.

Pilot recordings complete!

Pilot recordings have successfully been recorded and completed. Preliminary analysis shows clean recordings. Here’s an exciting extract of one of those recordings using Praat. We love Praat.


All set up and ready to go!

All the equipment has been tried and tested and we are ready to go. We even have a custom poster of West Yorkshire metropolitan borough boundaries on our wall.

WYRED has its own home at The University of Huddersfield


The WYRED project is based in EK3/11 at The University of Huddersfield. This Speech Science Lab contains our office space and the custom in-built sound booth that will be used for all the studio-quality recordings.

A very important and very impressive milestone was achieved today – we officially have a door sign!

It’s official.

We have a website!

We’re live! We guess you already knew that though…
