Summary A teacher’s professional role is dependent on the effective and competent usage of his or her voice. However teachers in Hong Kong are often deficient in their ability to project their voices clearly and confidently. There is an obvious need for some form of voice training to be introduced to enhance their proficiency in their roles as educators. To address this, we have introduced a voice training system to help solve these problems. The ultimate goal of this project is to promote awareness and provide training for improving enunciation and voice projection among teachers. A real time visual feedback voice training system (RV) has been built for teachers to help them acquire effective vocal techniques. Following the simple instructions from the system, they can visualize their voices and make improvements accordingly. This project can be extended to students as well as those who want to be skilled and confident public speakers and even those who are training as singers.
