Agnes presenting for CeASR on Real Time Visual Feedback in Speech Training

Agnes will be presenting some of her PhD data to the Centre for Applied Social Research (CeASR) seminar series tomorrow

City Campus Calverley Building, CL213, Leeds, LS1 3HE (Full details)

Our first language can impact on the acquisition of second language speech sounds due to perception biased by the L1.  Augmented visual feedback designed to compensate for these influences typically involve visual representation of acoustics or visual representation of the vocal tract e.g. ultrasound. These methods suffer from difficulties in interpretation, either due to their abstract nature or by invoking an internal locus of attention.  An ecologically-inspired feedback will be presented which tracks the appropriate articulatory degrees of freedom in vowel production, without drawing attention to the actions of the vocal tract.
