Overview

This interactive software program, authored by Fred D. Minifie, Ph.D, provides valuable instructional/clinical tools for speech-language pathologists, otolaryngologists, speech scientists, linguists, teachers of singing, and other professionals. This program includes 41 dynamic animations, with sound, of the structural movements involved in the production of each of the vowels and consonants of American English. Includes double support card.

Vowel View
Each vowel button shows a lateral view of dynamic animations of movements of the jaw, lips, tongue, velum (soft palate), and larynx needed for proper articulation of that vowel. An audio signal for each vowel sound is synchronized with the dynamic animations.

Consonant View
Consonants are organized in the following categories: stops, fricatives, affricates, nasals and non-nasal semivowels. After choosing a particular consonant the user can see a lateral view of dynamic animations of movements of the jaw, lips, tongue, velum (soft palate), and larynx needed for proper articulation of that consonant while hearing a time-synchronized consonant-vowel syllable of that consonant. Includes a spoken word and sentence using the featured consonant.

Anatomy View
Anatomy view includes a lateral view rollover of the articulators used in speech articulation. Includes a waveform animation example of the vowel /a/.

Support Card
Two, full color, plastic laminated card that details speech articulation.
