You can use numeric expressions and string (text) expressions in many places in Praat:

• in the calculator in Praat’s Goodies submenu;
• in the numeric fields of most settings windows;
• in a Praat script.

For some types of objects (mainly Sound and Matrix), you can also apply formulas to all their contents at the same time:

• when you create a Sound or a Matrix from the New menu;
• when you choose Formula... from the Modify menu for a selected object.

You can read this tutorial sequentially with the help of the “< 1” and “1 >” buttons.
