Project Details


A corpus of Australian children’s typically developing and disordered speech. This project aims to create a large sized, publicly accessible corpus of annotated Australian children’s speech, something currently lacking both in Australia and internationally. This corpus will provide the basic infrastructure vital for innovative research on children’s speech and the training of our speech scientists and engineers. It will be used to address real-life and significant research questions pertaining to the development of children’s speech and the role technology can play to develop it. Benefits would include applications such as remote speech therapy, interactive reading tutors, pronunciation coaching and educational games.
