Third International Conference on Spoken Language Processing (ICSLP 94)
This paper describes a project for developing hypermedia software for spoken language education. The hardware is a combination of a Macintosh and a laser disk player, and the software is HyperCard stacks. The stacks are all interconnected and linked to the corresponding scenes in the video. Text stacks consist of the scenario in Japanese orthography, with translations into English, French, and other languages, as well as cultural or sociolinguistic explanations of certain words and expressions, and items in the scenes. Another text stack is for exercises based on expressions used in the video. The pitch data stack contains pitch curves for utterances in the video.
