CSA uses speech recognition technologies under license from Carnegie Mellon University. This technology helps you accurately and objectively assess English language skills by appropriately identifying what is correct and incorrect in the speaker’s pronunciation, grammar, and fluency.

The Intelligent Tutor in the NativeAccent® 4 (NA4) speech training program prioritizes English pronunciation training exercises according to the unique pronunciation requirements of each user. The NA4 performs the role of an automated pronunciation tutor by evaluating and ranking pronunciation challenges according to the skill that needs the most improvement.
