According to the American Stuttering Foundation, more than three million people stutter. With the newest development in stuttering technology, there is help for those who stutter.
SpeechEasy is an inconspicuous device, fitting in the ear canal much like a hearing aid, and using delayed auditory feedback. SpeechEasy is similar in appearance to a hearing aid. However, rather than amplifying sound, SpeechEasy alters sounds that go through the device so that you hear your voice at a slight time delay and at a different pitch.
The purpose of the delay and pitch change is to recreate a natural phenomenon known as the “choral effect.” The choral effect occurs when your stutter is dramatically reduced or even eliminated when you speak or sing in unison with others. This choral effect has been well documented for decades, and SpeechEasy uses it in a small, wearable device that can be used in everyday life.
Thousands of people across theUnited Statesare now using SpeechEasy – an anti-stuttering device which helps create true fluency. SpeechEasy was developed in the clinical laboratories at East Carolina University, located in Greenville, N.C., and has been on the market for more than10 years.
Based on the choral effect, SpeechEasy is changing how thousands of people encounter life!
