The dysarthric speech characteristics of 14 Thai stroke patients were assessed by Computerized Articulation Test program 1. Each speaker had been tested for speech correctness of all Thai phonemes. As the results, the error patterns were analyzed. Vowels and tonal characteristics were the most intact characteristics, while speech reduction of the cluster consonants was the most impaired feature. Both initial and final consonants were frequently substituted, followed by omission and distortion. Generally, monophthong vowels, low and mid tone, and unaspirated consonants were produced more precisely than the other features.
