Using Foreign-Accented Speech: To Localize or Not?

A session at Society for Technical Communication SUMMIT 2013

Tuesday 7th May, 2013

1:00pm to 2:00pm (EST)

There are currently more non-native speakers of English in the world, than native speakers; yet existing speech-mediated applications marginally reflect this fact, in part because not enough is known about how people will respond to accented speech-mediated technologies. This presentation addresses the conditions best suited for use of foreign-accented speech.
