A Usability Survey (US) conducted in 2007 documented foreign language (FL) student user experiences with the Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) features of a French version of the FL multimedia software by Auralog (Tell Me More). The current article was adapted from an earlier report of the Usability Survey and addresses the design, implications and outcomes. Results are presented to highlight reported user experiences, issues of student feedback, usability, research and human-computer interaction (HCI).
