`Hi All -`

I am trying to make a simple speech recognition program. I have samples of

spoken words saved as .wav files that I am importing into Matlab in order to

obtain the sequence of floating-point values that make it up. (I will then

perform LPC on these values ...) When I import the .wav files in Matlab,

the data matrix consists of two columns of several different values. I am

confused as to why there are two columns. In order to get simply the

time-domain values, can I take just the first column or do I need to combine

the two?

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you very much,

Gina Upperman
