Abstract

This research aimed to investigate the effect of Automatic Speech Recognition towards X grade students’ performance in English pronunciation, whether students learning through ASR are better significantlythan student s learning using regular instruction. Forty students in X grade in the beginning of second semester of the academic year 2015/2016 were selected as the study sample. They were assigned into two groups based on the class they were listed (X1 as the experimental group and X2 as the control group). The experimental group was trained using ASR method. They used Google’s voice search application in their smart phones, while the control group was trained by drilling manually. They were taught by the same teacher during eight meetings. The t-test showed that ASR does not affect significantly students’ pronunciation. However, the increased score and the factors affecting pronunciation in which it seemed to come out indicates the possibility of significant result when the treatments are longer and the samples are bigger. Keywords: Effect, Automatic Speech Recognition, Google’s voice search application, Pronunciation
