Sindhi is widely spoken in the Sindh province of Pakistan, and in some parts of India. This paper presents the acoustic analysis of the isolated utterances of all ten vowels present in the language inventory. The entire study is based on 7,500 voice samples collected through a rigorous field study from 75 native male speakers of the Sindh region in Pakistan. Subtle and major differences of the vowel qualities of the five distinct dialects of the region are highlighted. Finally the general acoustic features of the vowels considering the region as whole are described
