Prosodietrainer English Nederlands

The final outcome of the CATRIS project is a software application that provides objective prosody evaluations of the user. We have developed such a tool that we call the 'Prosodietrainer'.
The Prosodietrainer allows speech therapists to assess the prosodic capabilities of their patients and fully customize the tool according to the needs of a particular patient. This patient can take the customized software home, making patient specific therapy from home possible.

Who can use the Prosodietrainer?

The version of the Prosodietrainer that can be downloaded on this page is specifically meant to be used by speech therapists to assess and train the prosodic skills of people suffering from dysarthria. It is intended to be used with Dutch speaking patients only. The software is suitable for patients with mild to moderate dysarthria. It should not be used with patients suffering from aphonia.

What can the Prosodietrainer be used for?

The Prosodietrainer can be used to assess and train prosodic skills.

There are currently two aspects of prosody integrated in the software: rate of speech (speech rate and pauses) and intonation (question-statement differentiation).
