About the innovation

Why did you create this innovation?

Overworked language teachers, limited emphasis on oral skills, and little to no individual feedback for the learners. These are common problems in language learning. Learners miss out on the benefits of oral proficiency.

What does your innovation look like in practice?

We believe the best technical way to solve this, is to provide an AI-driven speech analytics platform that reduces the cognitive load for educators while simultaneously providing learners with instant personalized feedback.

Speechsquare is using a proprietary AI model to analyze the spoken text up to the phoneme. We run a content-agnostic platform that allows educators to upload or create their content within seconds. Educators can adapt speech recognition sensitivity depending on the proficiency level of the learner. Learners receive an immediate confidence score and personalized feedback upon completion. Educators will obtain advanced analytics for each individual learner, the content, and the overall oral proficiency progress of the cohort.

How has it been spreading?

Speechsquare is designed and optimized for 7 languages: Mandarin, Korean, Japanese English, French, German, and Spanish.

1. Developed successful global demo partnerships across key target audiences (language schools, K12 schools, universities, Edtech)
2. Selection to Asia-edition of AWS EdStart Acceleration Program
3. Awarded AWS Activate status with tech funding to boost growth

Impacting how languages are learned in Southeast Asia.
