Speechace has long been the leading API in speaking assessment and feedback. We were the first Word and Sentence Pronunciation Assessment API , the first Fluency Assessment API, the first Spontaneous Speech Assessment API, the first to predict and align speaking scores in standard rubrics such as IELTS and CEFR.
And today we are delighted to be the first API to provide comprehensive Pronunciation and Fluency Assessment with CEFR scores for French (France) and French (Canada).
Our new Speechace French models were specifically trained and evaluated to assess and provide feedback for non-native learners of French at a passage, sentence, word, syllable, and phoneme level. Our release criteria for our beta was high and required randomized blind evaluation on diverse datasets against ratings by qualified professional raters.
Our beta release has achieved the following performance metrics:
- 0.77 Pearson Correlation with independent blind professional raters
- 10.82 Root Mean Square Error (on 100 point scale)
