This work develops an Artificial Cognitive System (ACS) based on Recurrent Neural Networks that analyzes suitable
features of the audio channel in order to automatically identify the Corrective Focus on speech signals.

CALLIOPE, a multi-dimensional and abstract model, aiming at categorising all prosodic forms; SI-CALLIOPE, a sub-space for which we defined a corpus of recorder prosodic forms; the psychoacoustic experiment we are currently carrying on for investigating main acoustic behaviours and features involved into the discrimination of prosodic forms.

In this work we describe our roadmap to KaSPAR (Karaoke Speech-Prosody Analyzer and Recognizer), a software application dealing with the problematic of learning English as a foreign language, for Italian (or other transparent, romance languages) mother-tongue subjects with dyslexia.

This study is a web-based, psychoacoustic test for adult, Italian native-speakers, investigating detection of different prosodic phenomena in Standard Italian utterances.
