INTERSPEECH 2006 - ICSLP
We studied a group of immigrants who were following regular, teacherfronted Dutch classes, and who were assigned to three groups using either a) Dutch CAPT, an ASR-based Computer Assisted Pronunciation Training (CAPT) system that provides feedback on a number of Dutch speech sounds that are problematic for L2 learners b) a CAPT system without feedback c) no CAPT system. Participants were tested before and after the training. The results show that the ASR-based feedback was effective in correcting the errors addressed in the training.
