Speech Racer is a speech therapy application designed as a reinforcement tool for children and youth who struggle to pronounce the /r/ sound. Specifically, the app breaks down and analyzes the quality of the spoken /r/ to help users improve their pronunciation skills over time.
The Speech Racer therapy app features over 300 flash cards and 4 unique game modes that help users efficiently and accurately improve their speaking. Users receive immediate feedback for the progression of their language skills with color-coded encouragement prompts indicated by: Red (needs improvement), Yellow (almost there) and Green (proficient) score.
Our partnership with Speech Racer included the development of two custom iOS apps, a paid
and a lite
version, with unique functionality requirements.
We also modified and improved upon their pre-existing /r/ sound algorithms, written in the C programming language, ultimately improving the apps’ usability. In collaboration with Speech Racer
, our team consulted on the launch marketing plan strategy, the PC and desktop versions of the app, and provided insights on current market trends.
