The VOICEbook Player is a media player designed for foreign language learners. Working preferably in pairs, learners listen and write in what they heard, as in the age-old task of dictation. The Player then provides instant feedback using fuzzy logic, indicating what is right or partially right. Instead of a clearly-enunciated audio source used for assessing spelling (classic dictation), the VOICEbook source audio is purely authentic, since at all levels from beginner to C2 authentic audio presents a huge number of issues for language learners, and is the skill over which they have the least control. Come and be a language learner with listening problems, and see how the VOICEbook Player can resolve them for you!
