UDC code: 004.522

In the article the method of sounds pronunciation training in short words and phrases with interactive results visualization is suggested. Its foundation is the joint use of hidden Markov model approach and the multidimensional data nonlinear mapping. An example of method’s practical application in the task of certain phonemes pronunciation training in English words is present.

Key Words
nonlinear scaling, speech, hidden Markov model, pronunciation training
