Title
(EN) COMPARATIVE EVALUATION SYSTEM FOR IMPROVING THE PRONUNCIATION
(FR) SYSTEME D'EVALUATION COMPARATIVE POUR L'AMELIORATION DE LA PRONONCIATION
Abstract
(EN)
This system allows to evaluate the pronunciation of a word or a sentence, compared with a 'reference' pronunciation. It is comprised of an input microphone (1) for the user and an input microphone or recording (2) for the 'reference'. The two sound signals transformed into electric signals are amplified at '3', digitized and analysed at (4), stored at (5), and compared at (10). They are audible at (9). The comparison result evaluated according to a preselected level (11) is announced at (9) and displayed at (12). The user will be able to repeat till he reaches a maximum of resemblance with the 'reference' pronunciation. This system allows, by confrontation with the 'reference', to measure the performance of the user and to efficiently improve his pronunciation in any language.

Ce système permet d'évaluer la prononciation d'un mot ou d'une phrase, comparée à une prononciation 'référence'. Il comporte une entrée microphone (1) pour l'utilisateur et une entrée microphone ou enregistrement (2) pour la 'référence'. Les deux signaux sonores transformés en signaux électriques sont amplifiés en (3), numérisés et analysés en (4), mémorisés en (5), et comparés en (10). Ils sont audibles en (9). Le résultat de la comparaison évalué selon un niveau présélectionné (11) est annoncé en (9) et affiché en (12). L'utilisateur pourra répéter jusqu'à un maximum de ressemblance avec la prononciation 'référence'. Ce système permet, par la confrontation avec la 'référence', de mesurer la performance de l'utilisateur et d'améliorer efficacement sa prononciation dans une langue quelconque.
