BetterAccent Tutor's purpose is
to help students speak clearly and effectively and to be easily understood. We believe
that there is no such thing as right or wrong pronunciation; not even two native speakers
speak alike. But to be understood by native and non-native speakers, it is
imperative for non-native speakers to match native speakers at certain key points. With
visual feedback, the Tutor shows users speech characteristics that are most
The three factors
that have the biggest impact on intelligibility of speech are intonation, stress and
rhythm. BetterAccent Tutor analyzes and visualizes intonation, stress and rhythm patterns
of users' speech. By visualizing users' pronunciation, the Tutor allows users to focus on
the problems that are unique to their speech. The Tutor is designed to give users the
power to identify, understand and correct pronunciation errors.
