Abstract

The potential benefits of computer-assisted pronunciation teaching (CAPT) include a private, stress-free learning environment; virtually unlimited input; practice at the student’s own pace; individualized, instantaneous feedback through Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR); and visual acoustic and articulatory displays. Regrettably, however, CAPT software does not always measure up to its potential. Furthermore, many L2 teachers and learners are not familiar with the full range of CAPT possibilities and may not be aware of what features to look for in an instructional product. This paper shares a remedy to this problem—a comprehensive set of criteria for analyzing and evaluating CAPT software, websites, and mobile apps. Utilizing an easy-to-use checklist format, as well as Likert-scale and open-response items, this system is designed to guide teachers and learners in evaluating CAPT programs.
