Ummo is your personal speech coach. Whether you are practicing for a presentation or looking to improve your day-to-day communication, use Ummo to track your filler words ("Umms" and "Uhhs", “like”, “you know”), pace, word power, clarity, and more.
Ummo is easy to use and customizable. Just click the record button to start listening and click it again to stop listening. Ummo will analyze your speech as you talk and show you how you did when you’re done. If you want to track any specific word or phrases, just add them in the settings tab!
What's New in Version 1.0.6
1. UK Dialect support: you asked for this, and we listened. If you speak English in a UK accent, go to the Settings tab, click on "Language /Accent", and select "English (UK)" from the list. Spanish, Portuguese, and more coming soon!
2. "Start Over" button on the recording screen -- restart your recording at any point without having to go through the results screen.
3. The real-time beeping when you say filler words is turned off by default in this version. Turn it on at any point in "Settings" > "Play Sound on Filler Word"
Worked very well
Ummo app is very easy and simple
As a foreigner I speak very fast. Ummo app allowed me to reduce the speed of my speech and speak more clearly
I would recommend to give a try
Useless app. Randomly stops recording, after which it says it is processing the transcription which never finishes. Absolutely provides zero value.
Great but plenty of room for improvements
I like the app it does exactly what I want it to do but there's room for improvements.
It should have that feature that prevents the iPhone from shutting off when it's on ( the apps I use for speaking notes have it). I speak for up to an hour at a time and when I rehearse the phone turns off which makes this app pretty limited.
