iPronounce: Understanding Pronunciation Apps
DJ Kaiser, PhD will provide an overview of mobile apps (iOS) for English pronunciation with a focus on “app affordances” (Beach & O’Brien, 2015). Based on a review of dozens of iPhone apps for learning English pronunciation, Dr. Kaiser will discuss various features of apps, in addition to their potential uses and many weaknesses. These features will include the incorporation of games, use of the front-facing camera, and integration of voice recording. Special attention will be given to the role of corrective feedback in some of these apps through Automated Speech Recognition. The difference between apps that address segmentals and suprasegmentals will also be covered. The purpose of this presentation is to educate ESL/EFL instructors and English learners on the numerous options and limitations of currently available iPhone apps. Dr. Kaiser will also discuss how other features of mobile devices may be integrated into pronunciation training without the need of purchasing apps.
