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/

5/5 stars

a thoroughly indispensable app for SLPs working on articulation and motor speech disorders

Many of us therapists who have worked with individuals with articulation and motor speech disorders had at one time or another wished at the back of our minds for a way to show our clients HOW to position the articulators in order to produce the target phonemes. This app is it. Instead of shining a penlight into one's mouth, this app lets us show our clients exactly what should be done before each phoneme is produced. Features such as information about each phoneme, options to tweak playback speed and viewpoint, and an option to record one's voice are very welcome features that makes this app a must in every SLP's hands.

Speech Tutor (in Your Pocket)

I'm not a certified speech therapist, but as a special education teacher, I’ve found many uses for their apps in my tutoring practice. When a student has difficulty producing the right sound when we are spelling words (I use Sound Literacy for word building) I switch to Speech Tutor or Minimal Pairs.

With Speech Tutor, the student can listen to the sound being produced, while watching either a side view or front view of the mouth as the sound is made. This aspect of the app can be shown at slow, medium, or fast speed, which really helps the student ‘see’ the sound being made. The student can then match their tongue, teeth, and lips to the model, and record themselves making the sound.

A really cool feature is that the animation of the face has a ‘see-through’ quality which allows you to see the position of the tongue in relation to the lips and teeth. Another is the ‘palate diagram’ for certain sounds. This is also handy for helping students understand tongue placement.

In addition, older students can take advantage of the pop-up that explains in detail how the sound is produced. After using this app, my adult client had an ‘aha’ kind of moment, and could produce the sounds more accurately as well as hear the sounds better when I said syllables or words.

After looking at several apps, I found that Speech Tutor has very accurate sound production, eliminating the ‘uh’ sound that is so difficult to hold back…i.e. ‘p’ is ‘p’, not ‘puh’…this is very important for spelling accuracy…i.e. it’s P I G not P UH I G. It’s helping my students tremendously to understand that there are THREE sounds, not FOUR in the word.

This app is very well done, and there’s a short ‘basics’ tutorial on how to make the sounds, so that parents could use this to practice with their children at home, under a speech therapist’s direction. (reposted from my Blog).

Layperson Very Impressed....Great App

Hello, I am a Behavioral Management Specialist working with a 7 yr old child with ASD. In the last year, my client has been recieving Speech Therapy and was still having problems with several letters/sounds, however since stumbling upon this very comprehensive and easily understood, by me, app, my client, being more visual than most, has shown marked improvements. Watching the animations have been easy for me to use and coordinate with the client to work on the l's, f's, r's. I am using the app on an iphone, wish I had it on an ipad, but it still is easy to see. I have only been using the app for 3 wks, Very happy. This augments his therapy perfectly. Mike
