Berlin, BRB (PRWEB) May 16, 2012
Apps2Go releases the new App 'A better speaker', a new way to learn the fascinating art of speaking, presenting and pronunciation to reach an audience faster, more directly and more successfully.
Many people invest a lot of time and money in a positive presentation of themselves, by going to the gym, dressing well and spending money on beauty and grooming products and the only thing neglected is the voice. This seems a little hit and miss especially when the first sentence we speak is so important to the impression we make on another person.
The app ‘A better speaker’ is a tool for everyone who wants to learn where the voice sits and how to use the voice to its full potential. If an important interview or examination is on the cards this app can help to improve technique and breath control.
Actors, voice-over artists, translators, teachers, people in management positions all know of the importance of clear and correct speech. They take lessons, visit vocal therapists or use many of the varied exercises to get their voice into shape. This app is an aid for pros too - to recap or to learn anew - a whole collection of fascinating and important tips to improve and optimize the voice and vocal technique. Apps2Go has worked with professionals who can count on many years of combined experience to be most the effective for everybody’s vocal needs.
Jonathan Agar - voice-over artist, author and translator - has compiled an extensive collection of well-proven exercises especially for this app and with Jonathan Tilley, a voice-over artist with many years of professional experience providing the voice to lead the user through the app, no questions remain unanswered.
A better speaker: Vocal exercises to improve pronunciation
Books with accompanying CDs were the means to an end yesterday. Today ‘A better speaker’ has it all: written tips, voiced examples and photos to guide through the entire course.
The basic package that is included in the first section has the first 11 of 110 exercises that make up the complete product. The importance of posture, voice, breathing and articulation are at the center of this first chapter. Each exercise prepares and leads into the next so that the user will notice the seeds of success beginning to grow in no time at all. The mutterer of yesterday can say a loud and clear “Hello” to the confident and well-spoken speaker of today. Exercises to relax the knees, deep and shallow breathing and improving resonance in the voice will quickly and surely lighten the way.
The demonstrations also show the user that for example not only the soul and the body need to be loose and ready to talk, but the mouth and tongue too. How to do this as well as many other exercises are shown within the app in glorious detail!
Having fun is central to the author’s philosophy and there is plenty to be had, especially with the use of tongue-twisters such as ‘Thirty-three thousand thugs…’ This particular one is to practice the TH sound - and there is even a built in record function to take down and control the own progress.
Jonathan Agar: “The biggest challenge for me was to make the exercises as effective and complete as possible and yet keep the fun aspect to aid learning. Speaking well can be fun to learn and fun to do - and I am sure that we have managed that with this app”.
