SpeakPulse, the sixth tool added to ENTITY’s core wraparound services, is an AI-enabled speech analytics software that helps learners and job seekers improve their fluency, communication skills, interview performance and overall confidence. Features include:

  • Randomized interview prompts with the ability to record and playback 30-60 second soundbites
  • Analysis, scoring and ranking of speech patterns (redundancy, stutters, stumbles), usage of filler words, quality of articulation and pronunciation, and speech rates
  • Option to accelerate progress by meeting 1:1 with a certified career coach

The application uses pattern-matching techniques to identify patterns of speech that reflect speaker confidence and fluency. By simulating an interview setting, users prepare to answer real-world questions and 85% have shown increased confidence levels.
