The fluency pronunciation trainer

Maxine Eskenazi, Scott Hansma

In this article we describe the basis of the Fluency project for foreign language pronunciation training using automatic speech recognition. We describe the theoretical base, the interactive duration correction module, and our work toward adaptation to the way in which the user learns best. We show results in preliminary tests of the latter, and discuss future directions of the project.
