As a non-native English learner, I wonder if there is some software that can check the pronunciation automatically: a user speaks into it, and the program reports some type of assessment, like “you sound 70 percent native”.
I don’t mean exactly this behavior, I’m just looking for any working tool for automatic pronunciation checking (i.e. checking by program and not by a human ear), maybe along with the intonation. To be precise, I’m learning RP accent aka BBC English, and I’m looking for software that can handle this particular accent.
I’ve googled quite a lot before asking my question here, but I didn’t find anything similar. But being not only a English learner, but also a software engineer, I’m sure that modern technology is fully capable of evaluating the “nativeness” of the speech. Of course, not at the level of a native human speaker, but perhaps quite sufficient for the training.
