Speech on the Web: An MIT Lab Course

Janet Slifka, Stefanie Shattuck-Hufnagel, Laura Koller

Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA

The materials for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) course, Laboratory on the Physiology, Acoustics and Perception of Speech have been made available on the Web as part of MIT's OpenCourseWare (MIT OCW) initiative. The course, originally developed by Dennis Klatt and now taught by Ken Stevens, emphasizes the development of analysis skills in the domains of linguistics, articulation, acoustics, and perception. The course offers fifteen labs; a core set of labs aims to familiarize the student with a range of laboratory methods, and a flexible set of labs focuses on current research issues. The site provides downloads of lab instructions and recorded media to support the labs. Where appropriate freeware is not easily available, downloads for software tools are provided. The MIT OCW program is not a distance-learning initiative; instead it provides free and searchable access to MIT course materials to any user. (http://ocw.mit.edu/6/6.542j/f01/index.html)
