Appreciating speech through gaming

M. T. Carreon, S. T. Sadural


This paper discusses the Speech and Phoneme Recognition as an Educational Aid for the Deaf and Hearing Impaired (SPREAD) application and the ongoing research on its deployment as a tool for motivating deaf and
hearing impaired students to learn and appreciate speech. This application
uses the Sphinx-4 voice recognition system to analyze the vocalization of the
student and provide prompt feedback on their pronunciation. The packaging of the application as an interactive game aims to provide additional motivation for the deaf and hearing impaired student through visual
motivation for them to learn and appreciate speech.
