In this paper we will describe the results of the ISAEUS project (TIDE DE 3004) achieved until now. The objective of this project is to develop a state of the art, cost effective, prototype for training deaf people in German, French and Spanish languages. We describe the user needs as understood for the users of ISAEUS: deaf persons and speech therapist. The paper also includes a brief description of the main blocks of the system: the acoustic-phonetic analyser in which will be based the exercises, the set of exercises that will be included, other features of the system and the real implementation. The paper will finalise with the description of the strategies for evaluating the effectiveness of this tool.
