Computer-Assisted Audiovisual Language Learning
Found in: Computer
By Lijuan Wang,Yao Qian,Matthew Scott,Gang Chen,Frank Soong
Issue Date:June 2012
pp. 38-47
Advances in speech-processing technology have enabled novel ways to learn a foreign language online. With Engkoo, researchers in China are working to turn any computer into a language learning assistant and make searching a language easier. The featured We...
 
An evidence framework for Bayesian learning of continuous-density hidden Markov models
Found in: Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing, IEEE International Conference on
By Yu Zhang, Peng Liu, Jen-Tzung Chien, Frank Soong
Issue Date:April 2009
pp. 3857-3860
We present an evidence Bayesian framework, which can learn both the prior distributions and posterior distributions from data, for continuous-density hidden Markov models (CDHMM). The goal of this study is to build the regularized CDHMMs to improve model g...
 
Improving mispronunciation detection using machine learning
Found in: Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing, IEEE International Conference on
By Yuqiang Chen, Chao Huang, Frank Soong
Issue Date:April 2009
pp. 4865-4868
In this paper, we investigate the problem of mispronunciation detection by considering the influence of speaker and syllables. Machine learning techniques are used to make our method more convenient and flexible for new features, such as syllables normaliz...
