Speech Tutor App Description

***Now with ability to upgrade at a discount*** Whether you’re a speech and language pathologist (SLP), an SLP college student, a parent of children with speech delays, or someone trying to improve their American English accent, you’re going to find this an invaluable application. A first of its kind in the field, Speech Tutor brings the latest in technology and animation to the world of speech. The animations inside Speech Tutor take the areas of the face that impede the view of tongue placement and positioning and make them transparent. Now one can literally see inside the mouth as the sounds are being made! Speech Tutor offers a “Side View” and a “Front View” of each sound production, both of which can be viewed at 3 different speeds (slow, medium, fast). The movies can also be paused any given point. With 132 animations in all, Speech Tutor is sure to offer a helpful view and speed for anyone in need. Speech Tutor does not stop there though. Non SLPs can begin the application by reading an easy to understand “Basics” tutorial which provides the reader with a solid foundation of the basic knowledge needed to know before attempting to improve any/all English consonants. Also provided is detailed text specific to each sound that further describes how each sound is technically made, tips provided by licensed speech and language pathologists, and milestones for when each sound should be acquired and mastered. Along with viewing the animations, one can also view a “Palate” diagram to further demonstrate where on the palate the tongue should be placed. Last but not least, users of the application can choose to record themselves as they practice their target sounds and then choose to play it before and after a correctly modeled production. Animations for the following sounds are provided: P, B, T, D, K, G, N, M, ING, F, V, S, Z, SH, CH, J, L, R (retroflex and bunched), TH (voiced and voiceless) and 4 new vowel animations - /i/, /u/, /a/ and /æ/

  • Love this app!

    By speechmom9597
    I upgraded to the pro version about a year ago. My students love it. I like that it makes the hard to see sounds visible and the kids like seeing and hearing themselves with the camera and microphone capabilities. The variety of pictures is great too. I’ve even used it with graduate students to help them improve their understanding of the articulators.

    Liked the older version. Used it frequently in tx sessions. Haven't been able to get pro to work on my older device.
  • Love it!

    By Figuratively Speeching SLP
    I use Speech Tutor on a daily basis, especially with my r students. The kids love the visuals, it really helps them to see what they need to do to produce their sounds correctly. I also like the ability to switch off to different students in a group, rather than using with just one student at a time.

    I upgraded to Pro through the app. I love using the videos for my older students. It’s hard for them to see how to produce bs k sounds and these videos help with understanding tongue movements. Looking forward to all the new materials and student progress tools.

    Hey SLPs, SO worth it to upgrade to pro! This is my “go to” app for my articulation kiddos. Can’t wait for all the new updates. Thanks, Pocket SLP!

    I’ve upgrade to the pro version and use it frequently! My students enjoy the pics, video recording, and placement videos. I love the graphing and ability to have historical data to show progress!

    I upgraded to speech tutor pro through the app. It was a good deal. Only 9.99. I like many things about it. My favorite part is being able to show my students how you make different speech sounds in the mouth. I also like that there is a screener.

    I use this app almost daily in therapy. The visuals of tongue placement are very important in therapy success and this app does an awesome job of showing it from many angles!
  • Long time user - love the upgrade

    By Flour D Lee
    Speech tutor was the first tool I had ever found that could show my students how to produce back sounds like /k/ or /r/. I love the new pro version that allows me to practice words, conducting a whole session, reverting back to the video when needed without having to switch between apps. Well done! Keep up the good work!
