Abstract

It has hitherto only been possible to offer programmes for foreign language instruction, therapeutic language instruction and general speech education in a limited way or not at all by machine means because it has not been possible adequately to analyse, correct and treat the most important component, the acoustic one. By including digital voice recording in a computer-controlled interactive video system, the direct, visually displayed comparison between student performance and model is made possible, as is the automatic indication of the correct form. The system provides the student with the possibility of checking, not only acoustically but also visually, to see how his own performance converges on the model with repeated practising which, for example for those hard of hearing but also for speakers of a source language having a completely different tonal system than that of the target language, means the only possible control.

Description

Die Erfindung betrifft ein Verbundsystem von The invention relates to a composite system of

  • a) visuell-akustischem Speichermedium a) visual-acoustic storage medium
  • b) Rechner b) calculator
  • c) Einheit für digitale Sprachaufnahme und -verarbeitung c) unit for digital voice recording and processing

einschließlich Zubehör wie Tastatur mit umschaltbarem Zeichensatz, Drucker, Monitor und Kopfhörer-Mikrofon-Einheit. including accessories such as keyboard with selectable font, printer, monitor and headphone-microphone unit. Mit diesem System werden Programme für Fremdsprachenunterricht, therapeutischen Sprachunterricht, allgemeine Sprecherziehung und alle ähnlichen Zwecke dargeboten, denen gemeinsam ist, daß die akustische (phonetisch-phonologische, intonatorische) Erkennung und Korrektur der Sprechleistung des Schülers unabdingbarer Bestandteil des Programms sein muß. With this system, programs for foreign language teaching, therapeutic language teaching, general speech training and all similar purposes are presented, which have in common that the acoustic (phonetic-phonological, intonation) detection and correction of crosstalk performance must be the student indispensable part of the program.

Die mit der Erfindung erzielten Vorteile: The advantages achieved with the invention:

Die digitale Aufzeichnung der Sprecherleistung des Schülers wird unmittelbar mit dem gegebenen Modell verglichen, Fehler werden grafisch durch Intonationskurven und Frequenzdiagramme auf dem Monitor angezeigt, wobei jeweils die Schülerleistung bzw. das Modell hörbar ist. The digital recording of the speaker performance of the pupil is directly compared with the given model errors are graphically indicated by intonation curves and frequency diagrams on the monitor, wherein each student performance or the model is audible. Die Korrektur erfolgt durch programmgesteuerte Einblendung entsprechender Phasen vom visuell-akustischen Speichermedium. The correction is performed by program-controlled insertion of corresponding phases of the visual-acoustic storage medium. Erneute Aufzeichnung und erneuter Vergleich erlauben dem Schüler, seine Fortschritte zu beobachten. Re-recording and re compared allow the students to observe his progress. Diese Möglichkeit der stufenweisen Annäherung an das Modell unter eigener Kontrolle ist besonders für therapeutische Maßnahmen wichtig, die visuelle Anzeige für Hörgeschädigte eine wünschenswerte, bisher aber nicht realisierte Hilfe. This possibility of gradual approximation to the model under its control is particularly important for therapeutic measures, the visual display for the hearing impaired is a desirable, but so far unrealized help.
