Android version of Visual Learning

Hayato Watanabe, Ian Wilson, Kyori Suzuki

Upon entering Japanese university and communicating with international students and foreign professors, Japanese undergraduates typically have many experiences when their English or other second language cannot be understood by their interlocutors. In order to learn how to pronounce and communicate in a way that can easily be understood by others, it would probably be useful to have an application that could evaluate one’s pronunciation and give feedback automatically, especially because pronunciation learning takes a lot of time. We developed Visual Learning 2 for iOS (Visual Learning 2: Pronunciation app using ultrasound, video, and MRI) in 2017 [1]. Now we have developed an initial version of this application for Android with more useful features such as lip-shape tracking and feedback.
