An interactive hypercard stack is being developed for pedagogy in several departments at a liberal arts college. The stack is intended for use as a supplement to introductory level courses in physics, psychology, speech pathology, audiology, and linguistics. Therefore, the stack is designed for students with no background in acoustic-phonetics, mathematics, or physics. At present, the stack is primarily concerned with vowel sounds. The three main content domains of the stack are speech production, auditory/speech perception, and the physics of sound. In addition, there is a hypertext-oriented glossary and a corpus of speech sounds with associated articulatory and acoustic information.
