    Re: Accent Assessment

    At the moment it's not set to take WMA files. I'll look into adding them. There are some issues in the recording with stress, but I think this is amplified because you are reading a text or something prepared rather than speaking naturally. When you read aloud, the stress is often unnatural, so if you could put something with yourself talking normally it would be easier to see what your stress and intonation are like.
