FluencyCoach is a free software application that uses Altered Auditory Feedback technology to simulate the effects of “Choral Speech” (speaking simultaneously with another person). It has been known for years that choral speech can promote fluency in a person who stutters, and in some people who suffer from Parkinson’s disease.
In recent years, the application of Altered Auditory Feedback has received a lot of attention as the technology underlying the well-known anti-stuttering device SpeechEasy.
FluencyCoach can be used:
- To sample the fluency-enhancing benefits of choral speech in the convenience of your own home.
- For independent, at-home reading and practice.
- In conjunction with a structured speech therapy program administered by your Speech Language Pathologist.
