I used to update to 6.0.15. Seems to work.

Development has now moved to github, and rather than create a -git package, the PKGBUILD downloads a pre-built binary. This was made possible by a change so that Praat calls pulseaudio directly, and the hard-coded change to PULSE_LATENCY_MSEC is no longer necessary.

The sources for 5.4.20 are available. (September 26)
EDIT: rather, the sources for 5.4.17 are no longer available.

Hi John, the sources of 5.4.15 version are not avalaibale.

I use this PKGBUILD ( to install 5.4.17 version.

The new PKGBUILD removes a line in the praat source that tinkers with pulseaudio environment variables, hardcoding PULSE_LATENCY_MSEC to 1. This value causes terrible audio for me, and hard-coding the environment variable seems like a no-no. I'll contact Paul Boersma to try to change it upstream.

Here is a working pkgbuild for the new version, 5.4.15

I've updated (although the changelog indicates the only changes have to do with running on windows). In the future, you can click "flag package out-of-date" if the only issue is an upstream update.

Thanks to jpate for maintaining this valuable package! The upstream package has been updated, please update here. Cheers!
