Installation Notes–PLEASE READ

1) During operation, this SpeechMark product calls the MATLAB Compiler Runtime (MCR) product, a software module developed and released by The Mathworks. The installation process for this SpeechMark product searches the user’s file system. If it does NOT find an invocable copy of the MCR, it automatically downloads an MCR install image from the SpeechMark web site, and attempts to install it. Following MCR installation, the SpeechMark installation process guides the user to exit the install process, and begin the installation of this SpeechMark product a second time. Once the MCR has been successfully installed, the SpeechMark installation process should run to completion.

2) Both the SpeechMark and MCR installation processes MUST be run with administrative privileges. If the user’s account does not have administrative privileges active, The installation process must be invoked with administrative privileges. To do this, hold down the SHIFT key, and click on the installation icon or file name. Then select “Run as…” from the context menu that appears. Then enter the name and password of a user who has administrative privileges.

Bug Fixes:
1) Workaround for MCR installation.
2) Resolve administrator privileges issues.
3) Resolved an issue when voicing continued past the end of the data
4) Resolved an issue where either voicing was very faint or only one landmark was found caused the results to be invalid


(None for this release)

Known Bugs:
1) The input waveform checksum that is supposed to be calculated and output in the landmark file header is not in fact calculated or output.

2) When the user includes the “/g” option on the command line, there MUST be a space between the “/g” and the speaker type character (e.g., “M”). If no space is included, the option is silently ignored.
