Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to investigate the auditory discrimination skill of Malay children using computer-based method. Currently, most of the auditory discrimination assessments are conducted manually by Speech-Language Pathologist. These conventional tests are actually general tests of sound discrimination, which do not reflect the client's specific speech sound errors. Thus, we propose computer-based Malay auditory discrimination test to automate the whole process of assessment as well as to customize the test according to the specific speech error sounds of the client. The ability in discriminating voiced and unvoiced Malay speech sounds was studied for the Malay children aged between 7 and 10 years old. The study showed no major difficulty for the children in discriminating the Malay speech sounds except differentiating /g/-/k/ sounds. Averagely the children of 7 years old failed to discriminate /g/-/k/ sounds.
