Abstract This paper describes the development of a Computer-Based Speech Training (CBST) program for modifying speaking rate. The program, called the "Stepping Stones Game," provides both visual and auditory feedback on overall speaking rate, articulation, and pause time. Preliminary results suggest that it is an effective tool for modifying speech rate and improving intelligibility in neurologically-impaired speakers.

L'article décrit la mise au point d'un programme informatisé d'éducation de la parole pour modifier le débit de la parole. Appelé "Stepping Stones Game," le programme fournit des rétroactions visuelles et auditives sur le débit de la parole, l'articulation et le temps de pause. Les premiers résultats laissent supposer qu'il s'agit d'un instrument efficace pour modifier le débit de la parole et améliorer l'intelligibilité chez les personnes souffrant de troubles neurologiques.
