Language Education

Pronunciation is rendered visually to help bring a language learner’s pronunciation closer to that of native speakers.

Learning to speak like a native takes a long time, as the subtleties of pronunciation are difficult to teach. Language solutions from Advanced Media allow users to learn correct native pronunciation in a fun, easy way.

AmiVoice®
CALL -pronunciation-

Improves the distinctive pronunciation
of Japanese people and brings it
closer to native English pronunciation.

Precisely indicates pronunciation errors made by each language learner while providing detailed advice. Creates an environment similar to one-on-one English conversation instruction.
This solution combines a voice recognition engine tuned to recognize the English spoken by Japanese people (pronounced similar to Japanese katakana) and a pronunciation evaluation engine that indicates areas of English pronunciation that Japanese people find difficult at the phonetic level. These two high-precision technologies create a system for specifically indicating pronunciation errors often made by Japanese people while providing related instruction.
When the learner puts on a headset microphone and reads the target sentences or words, the system displays objective indications of the learner’s pronunciation errors on screen. The system allows those familiar with the weaknesses in their pronunciation to focus on these areas and improve their speaking skills. This also leads to improved listening comprehension. With practice, users can readily confirm their progress and problem areas, establishing the foundations for setting future goals.
