Abstract:

THE AUDIO-VISUAL INITIAL DEBUG (AVID) METHOD IS PROSPOSED ASA FIRST- LINE SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT TOOL FOR LOCATING ERRORS IN NEW SOURCE CODE. THE CONCEPT INVOLVES USING A COMPUTERR SPEECH SYNTHESIZER CONNECTED TO THE TERMINAL TO PROVIDE AN AUDIO PLAY-BACK OF THE SOURCE CODE WHILE AS CURRENTLY ENVISIONED IS SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED TO ANALYZE AND SPEAK COMPUTER LANGUAGE. CERTAIN STANDARD AND USER-DEFINED KEY WORDS AREPROUNOUNCED WHILE ALL OTHER SYMBOLS ARE SPELLED CHARACTER BY CHARACTER. SPEECH IS ACCOMPLISHED VIA INEXPENSIVE, PHONEME-BASED, ADD-ON EQUIPMENT WITH ESSENITALLY UNLIMITED VOCABULARY. SPEAKING RATE, VOLUME, FREQUENCY, AND INTONATION ARE USER-CONTROLLED. IN ADDITION THE AVID SOFTWARE ALLOWS THE USER TO POSITION CONTROL AT ANY LINE IN HIS TEXT AND MOVE IN ANY DIRECTION. IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE AVID SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT, AN IN-DEPTH SURVEY OF EXISTING SPEECH SYNTHESIS TECHNOLOGY AND EQUIPMENT WILL BE COMPLETE; A DEMOSTRATION OF AVID'S CAPABILITIES WILL BE MADE AVAILABLE; AND RECOMMENDATIONS FOR PHASE IT DEVELOPMENT AND ENHACEMENTS WILL BE COMPILED.
