Parselmouth is a Python library for the Praat software.

Though other attempts have been made at porting functionality from Praat to Python, Parselmouth is unique in its aim to provide a complete and Pythonic interface to the internal Praat code. While other projects either wrap Praat’s scripting language or reimplementing parts of Praat’s functionality in Python, Parselmouth directly accesses Praat’s C/C++ code (which means the algorithms and their output are exactly the same as in Praat) and provides efficient access to the program’s data, but also provides an interface that looks no different from any other Python library.

Parselmouth is written by Yannick Jadoul and available on Github.
