ISCA International Workshop on Speech and Language Technology in Education (SLaTE 2011)
In this paper, we describe a framework for vocabulary acquisition
using audio books. The proposed framework performs automatic
alignment of text and large speech files in audio books.
This enables highlighting of words and sentences during voice
over. The proposed framework can be easily extended to a large
number of audio books. We evaluate this framework on a set
of subjects between the age of 7-13 years, and demonstrate the
effectiveness of such framework for vocabulary acquisition.
Index Terms. Audio books, Incidental vocabulary acquisition
