SpeechPrism provides many different ways of viewing speech sounds in real time. Two simultaneous views are provided so that one can be used as a prototype or template for learning. Note that this software is not intended as a substitute for treatment by a speech-language professional.
Applications of this software range from teaching hearing-impaired speakers to treating communications disorders to accent reduction. You can even be creative with this product and use it for learning to talk like any specific person (e.g. brush up on your David Brinkley or Arnold Schwartzenegger accent).
This software is offered as a free 30 day fully-functional shareware trial.
