Computer-based visual speech training has become widely used both within medical and pedagogical rehabilitation in Sweden. When learning speech motor ability clear instruction is of great importance in order for the learner to realise what is deviant and what is correct in his or her pattern of behaviour. The correct behaviour should then be established and automated through extensive training for it to be transferred to untrained situations. This paper discusses teaching strategies and reports positive training results obtained through the visually contrastive feedback that this modern technical speech training aid offers.
