Abstract
This paper describes an experiment in which groups of children attempted to improve their English pronunciation using an English language learning
software, some English ªlms, and a speech-to-text software engine. The experiment was designed to examine two hypotheses. The first is that speechto-
text software, trained in an appropriate voice, can act as an evaluator of accent and clarity of speech as well as help learners acquire a standard way of
speaking. The second is that groups of children can operate a computer and improve their pronunciation and clarity of speech, on their own, with no
intervention from teachers. The results of the experiment are positive and point to a possible new pedagogy.
