iSpraak: A web-based application for second language pronunciation instruction, assessment, and research

Scaling up development and dissemination of the iSpraak application as a free and open source language pronunciation instruction and learning tool. 

This NEH Digital Humanities Advancement Grant proposal outlines the plan to enhance, scale, and provide free access to the web application iSpraak. This digital platform equips educators and scholars with an innovative tool for second language pronunciation instruction, assessment, and research. Originally developed for internal use at Saint Louis University in 2014, iSpraak has now been used by tens of thousands of students and instructors across the globe. NEH funding is currently sought in order to continue development, remove cost barriers to access, and to make the platform fully open and accessible to all interested parties.
