I am quite new to PsychoPy and I have a question to the use of microphone response. I’m using the builder and I’d like to measure vocal reaction times during a simple production task, while using the microphone component. My PsychoPy trial looks like this:
I’m aware reaction times can be obtained manually, for instance by examining the waveforms for each trial in a sound editor (such as Audacity), putting markers on the start of the speech manually, and calculating vocal response time relative to the start of the trial/recording. However, this would be quite laborious, given that each experiment consists of 36 recordings and 120 participants will be examined.
Is there any other way to get reaction time data? Can any code be inserted?
Could anyone please help me? (A dummy-version explanation will be very much appreciated. )
Thanks a lot!
