Abstract

TeachAR is an Augmented Reality (AR) tool for teaching English colors, shapes, and spatial relationships to young children aged 4 to 6 years old who are non-native speakers of English. TeachAR utilizes the ARToolkit plugin for the Unity game engine for square marker tracking and game development. The Microsoft Kinect’s microphone and speech API is used for isolated word speech recognition, a webcam for image capturing and a desktop monitor for viewing the AR scene. Previous language learning AR applications usually use audio output, however TeachAR uses speech as input for language learning. This paper describes the TeachAR demonstration and user experience with the application.
