Message 2: Interactive Phonetics CD

Date: Wed, 6 Sep 2000 16:18:41 +1000
From: Nick Reid <nreidmetz.une.edu.au>
Subject: Interactive Phonetics CD

Karen Chung's lovely summary of useful phonetics URLs has prompted me to
bring to your attention the publication of the CD 'An Interactive
Introduction to Phonetics'.

Many LL subscribers expressed interest in the original 2-disc multimedia
program we developed for introductory Linguistics students at the
University of New England (Australia) way back in 1995.

This new CD ROM version has been significantly expanded from the disc-based
program incorporating new topics and glossary information.

With this program you can explore ideas in these modules:

* Vocal tract: click on parts of the vocal tract to learn about their role
in articulation.

* Speech sounds: click on buttons to associate vowel and consonant sounds
with their IPA symbol.

* Airstream mechanisms: learn about different ways that air can be made to
move in order to produce speech sounds.

* Phonation modes: see the vocal folds in action, and discover how
different settings produce different voice qualities.

* Acoustic analysis: discover ways to analyse speech acoustically.

* Self Testing Exercises: The program also includes exercises so you can
assess your learning.


Availability
Available on dual-platform CD-ROM, offering equal access to both Windows
and Macintosh users. Please note that this program has been developed for
the latest hardware standards - it will NOT run on an old computer! The

Animations:
Uses computer animations to demonstrate a variety of processes, such as
egresive airflow, the 'mucosal wave' action of the vocal folds, the
production of clicks, and speech using esophageal air.

Movies:
Includes endoscopic film of the vocal folds. You can play movies to see how
finetuning the vocal folds creates different voice qualities.
