Video illustrating the speech recording and cueing procedure (Levy et al., 2017)

"This video describes the speech recording procedure for this study. Each child attended a single recording session, conducted in a quiet room. To elicit the changes in speech production, instructions and a combination of visual and verbal cueing were provided as well as prerecorded examples from a model speaker. . . . In completing the stimulus recording, the child sat in front of an experimenter. Before recording began, the child was provided with verbal instructions regarding the procedure and introduced to a mascot—the 'Hawaiian Lion' puppet—who delivered cues and provided a visual reminder of the task instructions. In addition, children were shown further visual reminders: a drawing of a cartoon character with a large, open mouth. Furthermore, to facilitate the children’s understanding of the task requirements and to ensure that a consistent model was provided, we prerecorded a model speaker producing the utterances in habitual, big mouth, and strong voice conditions."
