This paper describes the SIRENE system which is being developed in our laboratory. SIRENE is an interactive computer-based system of speech-training aids for the deaf. It also includes a variety of procedures for analysis and classification of pathological voices. The basic idea of speech-training aids consists of compensating for the lack of auditory feedback in deaf children by use of visual displays. The system is intended to be used by speech teachers ; several acoustic and phonetic parameters of speech can be displayed and trained : pitch, voicing, intensity, etc... SIRENE also features the use of automatic speech recognition algorithms in the training of sounds and words.
