LikeSo is your personal speech coach. LikeSo offers a fun and effective way to train against verbal habits and practice speaking articulately, confidently and without all of those “likes,” and “sos.” With two modes of play: FreeStyle, your own open mic, and TalkAbout, a conversation game to practice speaking on the fly, LikeSo provides a real-time analysis of your speech fitness, including optimal pacing for the fast or slow talker.
LikeSo is for your next presentation, interview, meeting, audition, date, debate – even your next conversation!
What's New in Version 1.3
LikeSo is serving up speech fitness training for measuring, monitoring and motivating improvement in our speaking skills! The new version introduces the ability to set Goals and Reminders for upcoming speaking opportunities (Interviews, Presentations, Speeches, Toasts, etc.), Speech Quality Points and your Speech Conditioning Score, an ability to view results over time (day/wk/mos/yr), and the option for data capture. There is more content added to our conversation game, TalkAbout, including a new Topic called The College Interview, and prompts added to Debate Team from the National Speech and Debate Association (NSDA).
I have used LikeSo since it came out last year and my speaking skills have definitely improved. I use Freestyle whenever I need to prep for a school presentation and it helps me review my points and also figure out how to articulate myself in the best way. I use TalkAbout whenever I feel that I am regressing to my former filler-filled speech. LikeSo is for any student, professional, or regular person seeking to improve their speaking skills!!
My spouse uses the filler "uh" so much that I have tried to make him aware of it for many years but it doesn't last long and he's back at it again. Someone else has mentioned it to me also about his using "uh" almost between words, forget just between sentences! I was hoping "uh" and/or "huh" would be among the problem words. Nope, and there's no apparent way to add it. I just wish he could see reading from a printed script how many times he throws it in sometimes. Oh well.
This app has been such an eye opener for my daughter who is involved in high school debate. She has really tightened up her speech using this valuable tool! It will also help with college interviews
and other situations where clear and confident oral communication is crucial!
