Project Description

I need to put together a 'pronunciation evaluation' online application to evaluate pronunciation for English-as-second-language learners. At this stage, the project will only be a demo, but it has to be fully functional. The demo should be built according to [url removed, login to view]~ronanki/test/[url removed, login to view] but without the Flash/SWF recording part. Which means only 16bit signed 16khz .wav uploading is required.

Most components that make up this demo site is open source. The site itself is a demo of a scholar paper: [url removed, login to view] . The author provided the source here: [url removed, login to view] , but it's NOT the same source of the demo.

It appears no actual programming skill is required because this project involved NO modifications of the original CMU Sphinx speech recognition project it depended on. Instructions for the dependencies are here: [url removed, login to view]~ronanki/[url removed, login to view] . This is also a Google Summer of Code project, test files here: [url removed, login to view]~ronanki/test/GSoC_test/ . CMU Sphinx project is located here: [url removed, login to view] .

My choice of platform is Ubuntu, nginx. The majority portion of the source seemed to be in Python 2.x . You can write an PHP wrapper that calls Python script, or you can use something like [url removed, login to view] (as simple as possible) to build up the server and use provided source to handle requests.

Again this project won't involve that much programming effort. But it does require you to investigate and research. It'll take some time. I don't know how much this will cost for you so feel free to post your budget proposals.

Attached a sample wav file, which can be used on the demo site: [url removed, login to view]~ronanki/test/[url removed, login to view], to obtain a good score. The score for 'Complete_phrase' is [url removed, login to view] . When you ask me or submit proposals, make sure you've tried it, and write down the actual number in the place of 'XX' (to prove that you read my description).
