6.3 (15 November 2022)

6.2.23 (8 October 2022)

• Editor windows (such as the Sound window): showing a dialog window that calls a script (e.g. Log script 3, Log script 4 or an added command) should remove the previous version of that window.

6.2.05 (5 January 2022)

• Praat now includes eSpeak 1.51, raising the number of supported languages from 100 to 130.
