How Artikulate Aims to Help the User
The project contains different courses in various languages which in turn offer a variety of units: 'Scenarios' and 'Phonemes'. The 'Scenario Units' contain phrases of all lengths like words, expressions, sentences and paragraphs, while the 'Phoneme Units' contain all the basic phonemes of the particular language. Each phrase is accompanied by a recording which is done by native speakers and related phonemes are tagged to every phrase. You can now listen to these recordings and try speaking them in the same way, recording your own attempts in the process. By comparing and listening to the two recordings, you can correct your pronunciations in that specific language.
