PITTSBURGH, Sept. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Carnegie Speech, the intelligent language learning company, was awarded the Gold Award for Excellence in E-Learning by the prestigious Chief Learning Officer magazine during the publication’s annual Learning in Practice awards ceremony last week. The Company was the only language learning solution to be nominated.
Chief Learning Officer magazine’s Learning in Practice awards were developed to recognize industry leaders who have demonstrated excellence in the design and delivery of workforce learning and development programs. Awards are given annually in two broad categories: practitioners and providers, of which Carnegie Speech was nominated as a practitioner. The practitioner awards are reserved for practicing learning and development professionals at for-profit, nonprofit, government and academic organizations.
Carnegie Speech is a global leader in the development of spoken language training software that prepares enterprises and individuals to speak and understand new languages through personalized, immediate and pinpointed language analysis and instruction. Incorporating the linguistic expertise and technical innovations developed through decades of research at Carnegie Mellon University’s Language Technologies Institute, Carnegie Speech maximizes the effectiveness of spoken language instruction while minimizing training time and expense.
Carnegie Speech’s NativeAccent(TM) technology markedly improves users’ speech by up to 100% after as little of 10 hours of use and reduces learning time by up to 50 percent by using the exclusive Intelligent Tutor technology that prioritizes pronunciation training exercises based on each user’s individual needs factoring in gender, English proficiency and the student’s “mother-tongue” influence.
“Our technology is proven to dramatically improve the speech of those who use it to learn to speak English without an accent – an improvement which significantly impacts the lives of these individuals both personally and professionally,” said Paul Musselman, CEO of Carnegie Speech. “We are honored to receive this award and look forward to expanding our reach to further contribute to how individuals learn to speak English.”
