Paper Abstract

This project explored a system for developing a knowledge-base of phonetic rules for use in a subsequent larger project for working with the speech impaired. The overall project needs several support knowledge bases including one for "normal" phonemes. The concern here was on developing a learning system for constructing this, incorporating the pronunciations of a range of normal speakers. Thirteen speakers were used, training the system on the 17 vowel sounds. The system was developed on a microcomputer (PC) which is likely to be the most readily available machine to users of the overall system. The results were partially successful - suggestions for further work and improvement are discussed.
