SpeechSuper API Now Supports Mandarin Chinese Mispronunciation Detection
SpeechSuper has long supported the assessment of Mandarin Chinese character pronunciation by scores. However, scores might be insufficient to give concrete instructions to users.
We're excited to announce that SpeechSuper recently launched the feature - the Mandarin Chinese mispronunciation detection. It spots users' mispronunciations of Chinese characters and returns if they mispronounced an A sound for a B sound, making feedback more specific.
Here are two examples.
A user was expected to read aloud "níu", but she said, "líu", confusing the initial "n" and "l" in pronunciation.
A user was expected to read aloud "shēng", but she said, "shēn", confusing the final "-eng" and "-en" in pronunciation.
Click here to try it out.
SpeechSuper API found the error she mispronounced '-eng' for '-en' with a confidence score of 100. A classic confusion in pronunciation.
In conclusion, SpeechSuper API can handle mispronunciations of both initial sounds and onset sounds of Chinese characters, covering almost all confusing sounds from Chinese speakers and foreign learners.
At SpeechSuper we are passionately committed to improving the best spoken language assessment API for language learning providers. As of now, SpeechSuper's spoken Mandarin Chinese character assessment API provides not only an overall score, scores of initial sounds, onset sounds, and tones but also mispronunciation. If you are a Chinese language learning service provider and wish to engage your users with instructive and detailed feedback on spoken activities, please reach out and we will be happy to assist you.
If you wish to learn more or have any questions, please reach us at email@example.com. We look forward to hearing from you.
