  • 1.  New speaking test

    Posted 25-10-2021 08:24 PM
    Hello all,

    I am in the process of implementing a new type of speaking test which is completely automated and provides comprehensive feedback on pronunciation, vocabulary, fluency and grammar in student's speech. I am looking for a few teachers who may be willing to pilot the test with their students. If you feel interested please could you take a look at the test website here:

    Speaking test - Speechace | Pronunciation and fluency assessment via speech recognition

    There is no charge to use the test. If you'd like to try out the test then please send me a message and I will create a teacher account for you so you can not only try out the test with students but also see their performance.

    Thanks and I hope to hear back from some of you.
    Abhishek

    Dear Saltanat,

    The test is free to use. We currently do not have any charge at the moment. Please go ahead and try it directly via our website:
    www.speechace.com/speaking-test

    Currently we recommend that students use the test with a good microphone on Chrome browser. Thanks and please email me at abhishek@speechace.com in case you need any assistance.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the tip @yuliya summers! Much appreciated!

    Everyone, I am one of the developers of the software and am the cofounder/CEO of Speechace. We are solely focused on assessment and improvement of speaking abilities for English students. While the test I am talking about here (www.speechace.com/speaking-test) is a relatively new invention for assessment, we do have plenty of material and technology for remediation as well and you can try it out here: www.speechace.com/pc . ​

    Please feel free to reach out to me if you are interested in the test or any other piece of technology that catches your eye.
