Sound files 1.6. Compression

Praat used to be able to read some compressed sound file formats (shortened NIST, Polyphone), but because of licensing problems (Praat went open source, Shorten did not), you now need to use other (freely available) programs to do the conversion before reading them into Praat. Praat can decode (but not create) MP3 files. Praat fully supports FLAC compressed files.
