Abstract:

The purpose of the present project was to develop a computer speech display simulation system capable of generating a wide variety of speech displays from a recorded speech input. Eventually it is hoped that this will lead to a system whereby a person can obtain visual feedback as a corrective measure for work pronunciation. The basic system would involve two displays, one representing the subjects pronunciation of a particular word and the other prepresenting a correct pronunciation of the word. A computer would be used to process the incoming speech and produce a display containing features highly relevant to correct pronunciation. The subjects task would be to detect differences in the two displays and to change his pronunciation so as to make them more similar. Author
