PaceRecorder Helps You Pace Your Speech
One of the nervous habits that most people have when they speak to a large audience is to speak too quickly. This is especially true for students who are giving presentations to a group for the first time. PaceRecorder is a free Android app that aims to help people better pace their speeches.
PaceRecorder is a simple app that records your voice and gives you instant feedback about the pace with which you are speaking. The feedback comes in the form of three simple symbols; a turtle, a rabbit, and a thumbs-up. If the turtle appears while you’re speaking it indicates that you’re relaxed or perhaps a bit too slow. The rabbit indicates excitement and perhaps that you’re speaking a bit too quickly. And, of course, the thumbs-up means you’re right on track.
Here is a demo of PaceRecorder.
Students giving a talk to an audience could use this app both when they’re practicing and when they’re actually presenting. Students could lay their phones or tablets on podium or table in front of them to check their pacing as they move through their presentations.
