Nature and Context

Many Americans have a fear of social interactions or public speaking. This is limiting their personal life but can also effect their professional life. Public speaking is rarely part of general education, so finding alternate sources to learn these valuable skills can help individuals wanting to enter the workforce or just overcome their personal phobias.

Ideas Description

Focusing on the criteria of breathing, voice tone, movement and fluidity, the app will guide people to improve their speaking skills.
