The project “Choose Your Own Adventure: Teleporting to a Virtual Phonetics Laboratory” by Prof. Dr. Kevin Tang, Dr. Chris Geissler and Eoin O’Reilly will be funded by the E-Learning Förderfonds.

The project, “Reanimating African American Oral Histories of the Gulf South: Tailoring Education and Research through Natural Language Understanding”, involves the reformatting and annotation of 500 oral histories of African Americans from the Gulf South, representing the stories of people who lived through the transatlantic slave trade up to the present day, as well as the development of a new web search interface and 150 curriculum modules for K–12 educators.
Speech as a non-invasive biomarker could provide researchers and clinicians with new means to capture fine changes in speech articulation patterns associated with linguistic phenomena in the normal population or functional changes in articulation in individuals with disorders.
