Speech technology for language training and e-inclusion
2005 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
Efficient language learning is one of the keys to social inclusion. In this paper we present some work aiming at creating a virtual language tutor. The ambition is to create a tutor that can be engaged in many aspects of language learning from detailed pronunciation training to conversational practice. Some of the crucial components of such a system are described. An initial implementation of a stress/quantity training tutor for Swedish will be presented.
