Many, who have thought to have mastery of a foreign language have found that the native speaker of that language don't understand them due to the accent.<div><br></div><div>Accent is the manner of pronunciation peculiar to a particular individual, location or nation. Mastering the accent of the native speaker, reduces the friction in the communication between a native and non-native speaker of the same language.</div><div><br></div><div>There are numerous intuitive ways to learn foreign languages now a days, including mobile apps; but none I know of provides the native accent of a word or sentence in my own voice. I feel learning a language with native accent in our own voice would offer much more complete experience.</div><div><br></div><div>Hence, there is a need gap for a service which takes in our voice and plays back audio of a word or sentence in a language and accent of our choosing. Please do share your experiences on this problem and possible solutions.</div> 3 points posted by Abishek Muthian /problems/8-realtime-accent-changer-without-changing-voice-language-education 8 Fri, 30 Aug 2019 16:02:00 +0000
