Voice Recognition Technology – the competitive edge of VNPT MyEnglish14:47, 15/02/2019
With the application of smart voice recognition technology and Golive features, VNPT's online English learning service (VNPT MyEnglish) can quickly improve the weakest points of Vietnamese people in learning English - pronunciation and communication skills.
According to the EPI (English Proficiency Index) rankings studied by EE (Education First), the global ranking of Vietnam is 41th - a moderate level compared to other countries, while Vietnam is ranked 7th out of 21 countries studied in Asia (2018 report).
There are many reasons for the weakness in pronunciation and communication skills; however, the lack of confidence, the inability to recognize English sounds, and poor reflexes are the most common limitations, creating difficulties for Vietnamese students in learning English.
Understanding this top-most difficulty for English language learners, VNPT MyEnglish is built on the EnglishCentral technology platform (learning English with the best English tutoring videos in the world) focusing on pronunciation.
VNPT MyEnglish's voice recognition technology is differentiating from that of existing online English learning programs. As the technology focuses on improving the pronunciation skill of learners, students study with videos through the steps: Watch, Learn, and Speak. With the Watch and Learn functions, students can watch mouth movement, and learn how to speak and pronounce correctly. One of VNPT MyEnglish's unique and superior features is that it can record voices and receive system feedback on pronunciation. Intelli Speech technology (speak and record self voice) will show the ability of students in pronounce accurately on a scale from 0% to 100% when compared with native language. The system will analyze each word phonetically, indicating false pronunciation errors to help students correct them and practice pronouncing at international standards. The voice recognition technology also helps students feel like they are learning directly with native teachers but at lower costs. Thus, VNPT MyEnglish provides a learning method meeting the goals: efficiency and low cost.
With an online library system consisting 10,000 videos, 160 courses with copyrighted curriculum in many interesting topics, VNPT MyEnglish allows students to practice speaking anytime, anywhere. Besides, the application has many outstanding features, such as: Wrong pronunciation errors appear in red words (Students click on the red-marked words to see where their mistakes are and listen again, read from the samples to record their own reading); Pause (P) appears when students speak hesitantly or not fluently; Click on icons for slow reading mode and retry, if needed; Voice pronunciation comparison function (Students click on an icon to listen to their pronunciation again).
With MyEnglish, students can learn English with lively video lessons. Students can go to the SPEAK menu to practice the lesson directly. With smart voice recognition technology, the Speak feature will analyze each word phonetically, indicating each wrong pronunciation error so that students can recognize and correct errors. For multi-syllable words, the intelligent voice recognition technology can also show learners the pronunciation mistakes are at which parts of the words and instruct the correct reading method for the wrong reading position. Guides for mouth movement are also provided so that learners can easily visualize and fix pronunciation errors. In addition, the pronunciation comparison feature helps students to listen to their own pronunciations and compare them with standard ones. After each re-reading, the application will evaluate the accuracy in pronunciation with scores from 0 to 100 so that learners can see clearly their progress.
With the application of smart voice recognition technology and Golive features, VNPT's online English learning service (VNPT MyEnglish) can quickly improve the weakest points of Vietnamese people in learning English - pronunciation and communication skills.
