Abstract
Project LISTEN's Reading Tutor helps children learn to read. It uses speech recognition to listen to them read aloud, and responds with spoken and graphical feedback. The demonstration lets attendees try out this interaction themselves. Besides the spoken tutorial dialog, features shown include an automated tutorial for new users, interactive activities that combine assisted reading with other types of steps, and automated field studies to evaluate the efficacy of alternative tutorial interventions by embedding experiments within the Reading Tutor.
