Pronunciation Analysing-comparing for ESL students


My EsL students type the stories and record the speech in two languages  when making games with Scratch, Squeak Etoy and Powerpoint. They would benefit from a pronunciation analysing - comparing software that I use myself for learning other languages.  Is there any way to bring it into Scratch or Squeak Etoy?  Is there any open source software that I could use?

Re: Pronunciation Analysing-comparing for ESL students

Hi Krystof, it's great to know you're using Scratch in the context of ESL.

I think pronunciation analysis might beyond the core of the Scratch functionalities but perhaps once we release the source code (later this year) someone could implement it. I found this piece of software that you might find useful:

We would love to see some of your student's projects on this website!

Scratch on!
