Abstract

A speech therapy method includes selecting a problem speech sound and searching a database that houses records, each containing a picture and an associated word. A set of records is generated that contain a word specific to the problem speech's sound. At least a portion of each record is presented to a user sequentially for pronunciation, which is scored. A speech problem is analyzed by presenting a symbol representative of a word and prompting the user to pronounce the word represented by the symbol into a microphone in signal communication with a processor. Next the therapist enters a phonetic representation of the user pronunciation into the processor. Alternatively, the therapist can enter a phonetic representation of the user pronunciation into an operator input and storage device, the phonetic representation subsequently downloadable into the processor. It is then automatically determined whether an error exists in the pronunciation. If an error exists, the error is automatically categorized. A transcription method uses a computerized process to prompt a student to produce at least one phoneme orally. Next a correct and at least one incorrect production of the phoneme are displayed. The therapist selects from among the displayed productions based upon the student-produced phoneme. The therapist then uses an input device in signal communication with the processor to select from among the displayed correct and incorrect productions based upon the student-produced phoneme, thus obviating the need for the therapist to enter the incorrect production symbol by symbol.
