The visiBabble system processes infant vocalizations in real-time. It responds to the infant's syllable-like productions with brightly colored animations and auditory feedback. It saves an audio recording and its acoustic-phonetic analysis. The system reinforces the production of syllabic utterances that are associated with later language and cognitive development. We are developing both a toy and a clinical/research tool.
