Evoc-Learn — High quality simulation of early vocal learning

Evoc-Learn is a system for simulating early vocal learning of spoken language in ways that can overcome some of the major bottlenecks in vocal learning. The system consists of VocalTractLab, a geometrical three-dimensional vocal tract model for simulating aeroacoustics and articulatory dynamics, a coarticulation model for controlling the temporal dynamics of articulation, and a sensory feedback system for guiding the learning process. We will demonstrate each component of Evoc-Learn and show how they work together to simulate the learning of highly intelligible speech.
