Improve your speaking skills as Speech Center coaches you through a hostile audience and scanning attention around the room.
Everyone faces difficulties in communication, whether it’s speaking publicly, chatting with your girlfriend in a coffeeshop, or singing karaoke with friends. Practicing public speaking builds experience and confidence, but talking into a mirror only gets you so far…
We introduce an interactive educational service to improve public speaking and interpersonal communication. Speech Center capitalizes on the immersion of VR, allowing users to practice effective communication in ecologically valid virtual environments. Speech Center also provides direct instruction, teaching users common techniques to build confidence and speak clearly.
For VR Jam we are preparing an introductory lecture about public speaking, as well as a course that teaches users how to control an audience’s attention. Users will learn effective strategies to help keep calm, such as concentrating on specific individuals in a lecture hall. Users may also find themselves placed in unexpected, interesting situations. Speech Center includes multiple different environments to practice speaking in, such as a lecture hall and a conference room. Users can pick their environment and then practice, record, and play back their speech.
We are framing the project as a service with a wide range of applications. An online storefront would allow Speech Center users to buy new environments for training such as job interviews, cocktail receptions, and even dinner dates. We also plan to allow users to have dedicated one-on-one lessons with real speech coaches in our environments. Opening the platform to professional speech coaches allows them to earn money and allows users to improve their communication even more effectively.
Controls based on gaze direction, you can activate interactive element staring at one. At some points application involves voice control so it is better to use headphones instead of speakers in order to avoid the interference of you voice and sound from speakers. Press “back” button on the GearVR headset to stop the lesson and exit to menu.
How to get this app working with my Samsung gear vr & s6 ? ? i could not be able to install it or any app outside stoe !
You need to allow Unknown Services.. Took me a long to find out! Just go to this youtube-video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sAxgE43FVwA. Hope it helps you out.
Sorry i didn’t make the question clear.
I managed to install the apk file but it does not appear in Oculus store so i can see this app through samsung gear vr glasses.
When i open speech center app , it says u need to insert device: gear vr but i dont see speech center when i go to oculus store using glassess.
Thank you so much for visiting VR Bites. When I start the application it asks me to put it in my Gear VR. When I connect my Note 4 to the Gear VR at the moment this message is shown, it starts the application. As far as I know it is not possible to open the games with the Oculus Store, since it is a developers demo. Only games that are published on the store are shown in the Oculus Store. Hope this helps. You can contact the developer telling him you like the app and love to see the full release in the Oculus store. Developers love to hear that their work is appreciated.
Thanks again for visiting. If you have any suggestion in how I can make the site even better, just let me know!
I really thañk u for this reply and i appreciate your help to the public!.
I was trying to run some of apps using my gear vr and galaxy s6 where they are designed with note4. I think that was a problem. But its a good idea to communicate directly with developers to see some of their apps on oculus store!. Ill do that for sure , at least for the speech center.
All the best
Hi, I was filled with joy when I found the speech centre app. But as it doesn’t seem to work with my Samsung s7 edge I got a bit disappointed. I am able to download it, install it, but as soon as I hit start it only leaveshows a black screen. Any idea how to solve it? Br Eivind
Hi I tried to contact the developer, but his mailserver is down. His name is Dmitry Kirillov and the company is called VR-AR Laboratory: http://vrarlab.com/ Hope this helps you 🙂
