Computer based speech training systems aim to provide the client with customised tools for improving articulation based on audio-visual stimuli and feedback. They require the integration of various components of speech technology, such as speech recognition and transcription tools, and a database management system which supports multiple on-the-fly configurations of the speech training application. This paper describes the requirements and development of STRAPTk (www.dcs.shef.ac.uk/spandh/projects/straptk-Speech Training Application Toolkit) from the point of view of developers, clinicians, and clients in the domain of speech training for severely dysarthric speakers. Preliminary results from an extended field trial are presented.
