An integrated computer-based system (OLP) is proposed to supplement conventional therapy for persons with speech disorders. OLP will provide real-time visual feedback to help improve articulation, and automatic speech recognition to valuate this improvement and to provide an interface to assertive technology and/or speech synthesis. Through the Internet, OLP will allow therapy to be conducted off-site. Both the form of the feedback and the recognition component will be specifically tailored to a client group or to an individual. OLP will provide interfaces that will allow the therapist or the client to effect this customisation. Databases of disordered speech, therapy needs and protocols will be established to support application of the project components. OLP will be evaluated from the viewpoints of the both the clients and the therapists who use it.
