The goal of the study is to collect recordings of people saying words and sentences so we can train a computer to recognize clear and unclear productions. In the future this would help provide computer-based home practice for children with speech difficulties.

Who is eligible to participate?

English speaking children, aged 8 – 17 years, with “s” misarticulations

What will the study involve?
