This online resource is a product of the collaboration between researchers at six Scottish Universities: The University of Glasgow, Queen Margaret University, Napier University, the University of Strathclyde, the University of Edinburgh and the University of Aberdeen; as well as scholars from University College London and the University of Cardiff. The resource provides teachers and students of Practical Phonetics with ultrasound tongue imaging (UTI) video of speech, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) video of speech and 2D midsagittal head animations based on MRI and UTI data. The first phase of this resource began in July 2011 and was completed in September 2013. Further funding was obtained in 2014 to improve and augment this resource and to develop its sister site Dynamic Dialects. The website contains two main resources: 1. An introduction to UTI, MRI vocal tract imaging techniques and information about the production of the articulatory animations. 2. Clickable International Phonetic Association charts links to UTI, MRI and animated speech articulator video.
