an open-source, multi-platform graphical tool for marking word onsets
WavMark is designed for precise scoring and timing of participant responses during verbal tasks, especially Free Recall. However, it can be used for many kinds of audio annotation. WavMark displays an audio recording as a waveform on the screen, which automatically scrolls to keep reflect current playback.

WavMark is written in pure Java, and should run on all platforms with a Java SE Runtime Environment, version 5 or higher (including Mac, Linux, Windows, Solaris, and others). Most computers come with Java pre-installed, so you can probably run the installers above without worrying about system requirements.
The following configurations are regularly used in testing:
|Operating System||Java versions|
|Mac OS 10.6||Java 6|
|Mac OS 10.5||Java 5, 6|
