The fear of public speaking is the one of the biggest of the world, surpassing many others. Our software, Speex, is the solution to make people feel secure and less afraid of public presentations.
Using Microsoft HoloLens, we simulate a holographic scene with a virtual audience consisting of bots that behave like humans so the user can practice presentations and his ability in public speaking.
In a presentation several factors are considered, not only the verbal but also the corporal language.
Our software analyzes user movement, visual contact with the audience and the amount of language vices, all the information is sent to Microsoft Azure and stored to be displayed to the user who can see his presentation history and accomplish the required improvements according to the statistics.
Public speaking is a must and acquired with practice. Our proposal is to replace presentations in front of the mirror or with the family, for ones that propose interaction with the audience and juries, and also with a real analysis of the user's performance using our solution.
Our main purpose is empower yourself, acquire experience and confidence while speaking to your audience. Overcoming your fears and improving your personal and professional life.
