School Partnership Program NativeAccent®
English Speech Training
School Partnership Program Overview
The Carnegie Speech School Partnership Program provides a solution for schools and teachers who want to use NativeAccent, but are requiring students to purchase the software.
Under this partnership, Carnegie Speech agrees to provide teacher and administrator access to NativeAccent on an annual basis at no charge. Carnegie Speech will create school and teacher accounts, deliver teacher training, help set up courses and generate course key-codes.
Under this agreement, the school will provide their participating students with a software orientation, class key codes and ongoing instructional support. Carnegie Speech will provide a unique coupon code to each partner school.
The student will purchase the student license through an e-commerce solution in our online store. The student must select the School Partnership Program version of NativeAccent and apply the coupon code during checkout to reduce the price and generate the license.
Once the payment has been verified, an email will provide the student with access to self-enroll enroll in Native Accent and access to the student user guide. This process can take up to 24 hours.

How NativeAccent English Speech Training Works
Leveraging an extensible software platform using Speech Recognition and Artificial Intelligence Technologies under exclusive global license from Carnegie Mellon University, NativeAccent trains users to pronounce English words and phrases correctly by comparing the user's spoken words against a composite model of English speech, taking into account relevant gender, geography and other cultural contexts. Based on this comparison, a personalized English speech training curriculum is developed that prioritizes English pronunciation challenges, pinpoints speaking errors, and provides immediate, detailed English speech remediation instruction.
NativeAccent speech training is available on the internet, making spoken English training accessible anytime... anywhere.
