Throughout this article we present a phonetical data gathering instrument for researches in the area of speech sciences. We first introduce the advantages and disadvantages of instruments nowadays used in linguistics data collection; afterwards, we present the theoretical foundations in which the development of the proposed instrument is based. Subsequently, its most prominent characteristics are detailed, alongside with the design stages and the implementation and evaluation carried out. We conclude with the presentation of the most important characteristics the instrument must have in order to reach its more effective aplication in the stages of implementation and evaluation.
