Reviews

Reviewer: Central Coast Children's Foundation (CCCF), USA
Review: "This app is meant for people who stutter. It uses delayed auditory feedback (DAF) and frequency-shifting auditory feedback (FAF) to help speakers control their speech fluency, pitch and rate – with the goal of improving confidence and speech skills. DAF delays the voice, while FAF changes the pitch. While the app cannot yet be used for phone calls, it can be used with Bluetooth or the Apple earphones with remote and microphone."

Reviewer: Blogger, Stuttering Student, USA
Review: "The app does work for me. When I placed the earbuds into my ears and launched the device, I immediately was able to speak freely to a friend of mine with hardly any stammering or blocks. It was a tremendous feeling, and I kept talking nonstop for about 5 minutes. The small blocks I did have were almost inconsequential, and I was able to get past them almost by sheer will. My settings are 'delay of 140' and 'frequency shift of +3'. I tried a few others, and they worked nearly as well, so I can't say for sure which works the best."
