How it Works
LikeSo is your personal speech coach. LikeSo is for your next presentation, interview, meeting, audition, date, debate–even your next conversation!
Using voice recognition technology, the LikeSo speech app provides users with real-time analysis of their verbal skills. The app calculates an Articulate score grade (A+ thru Uh Oh!) based on a formula that looks at the percentage of non-filler words over total words spoken and your pace, with optimal pacing generally understood to be approximately 150 words per minute.
LikeSo offers two modes of “play”: TalkAbout and FreeStyle
FreeStyle is your open mic. FreeStyle gives you the flexibility to practice for any upcoming presentations, interviews, auditions–or just because you want to improve your speaking skills. In FreeStyle, you can speak for up to 30 minutes. Select the words you want the app to train against. You can “pause” or “stop” at any time. As in TalkAbout mode, at completion you will be presented with an analysis of your talk session and see your results.
TalkAbout is a conversation game to practice talking on the fly. Choose a topic from the list of 12 (e.g. The Job Interview, The College Interview, Debate Team, Pop Culture Favorites, Speed Dating, etc.). Your session will include five prompts. Select your Talk Time and the filler words you want to train against. Speak into your smartphone’s microphone and LikeSo will listen and capture your speech. At completion, you will be presented with an analysis of your talk session and see your results.
