How speech therapy software works
Often in speech therapy you rely on auditory feedback to modify your speech. By using icSpeech, you also have the advantage of visual feedback. With simple to use biofeedback displays you can view your speech in real-time, make corrections, and instantly see the results.
You can also make recordings, compare them with examples and perform precise measurements on a wide range of speech parameters, including pitch, voicing, timing and loudness.
With the new speech recognition features, you can also learn how to pronounce any sound, word or sentence and get instant feedback on your speech intelligibility.

Speech intelligibility refers to the 'understandability' of speech, and the ability to use speech to communicate effectively in everyday situations. It can be affected by many factors, including pronunciation accuracy, audibility and speaking rate.
The Speech Intelligibility Scorer uses speech recognition and text to speech technology to:
Provide a measure of speech intelligibility.
Provide a measure of audibility.
Provide a measure of speaking rate.
Provide example pronunciations of any letter, word, number or sentence.
Highlight unintelligible and problematic words.
It's important to be able to hear the difference between sounds in order to produce them accurately. Discriminating between sounds is often practised using 'minimal pairs'. A minimal pair is a pair of words where only one sound is different, for example 'pin' versus 'bin'.
The Minimal Pairs Tutor contains over 5,000 minimal pairs, complete with images and example pronunciations. It also encourages accurate speech production by recording your voice and providing feedback on your pronunciation.
Speech therapy games provide a fun and interactive environment for children to learn about speech. They also encourage children to practise their speech exercises for longer.
icSpeech Games contains six interactive speech therapy games. Each game features adjustable targets, rewards and can respond to a number of speech parameters. There's also a built-in voice recorder so you can record the gaming sessions.
