Preview of the BeneTalk™ App.

BeneTalk is a biofeedback device and mobile app to monitor breathing, speech patterns, and provide real-time feedback and performance history tracking, assisting people who stutter to improve their speech during daily activities.

People who stutter do not always experience disruption to their speech. As a result, they only tend to use speech management techniques in difficult speaking situations outside of their comfort zone. However, these techniques are ineffective if only used when fear is high. This is precisely why it is important to remember and practice speech habits as much as possible, even in situations that are not critical.

The harder I practice, the luckier I get.
