I’m trying to learn Italian and I’d like to find some software to help me with pronunciation practice.

I’m thinking that the program would play a sound file, dividing it into silence delimited clips. The program should play a clip and then listen to the microphone. If there is a long and loud enough signal from the microphone the program should record the input until there is a long enough silence. At that point I should be able to replay the microphone input clip or the sound file clip as many times as I would like navigate to a neighboring sound file clip. A spectrum analyzer and the ability to slow down replay would be nice bonuses. I’m guessing I could hack something up with snd or Audacity but there must some open source program out there that will save me the effort.
