Kyoto University, Japan

We will demonstrate systems for learning second language pronunciation using speech processing technology developed at Kyoto University. The target languages are English, Chinese and Japanese. One system assists earners by automatically subtitling their videos made during class with the relevant dialogue. Another system pinpoints pronunciation errors. We have used these systems in CALL classrooms at Kyoto University and universities in China.
