Short Summary

Hey Everyone!

Help make this iPad app come to life so that millions of people will improve their social skills, personal presentation skills, and leadership development. They too can find a career or continuing education program that allows them to fulfill their potential, and my app can help. For my cousin who has a developmental disability and for others out there who have trouble with eye contact and public speaking--let's make a difference today by investing in the future.

What We Need & What You Get

All funding will be invested directly to develop "Speech to Text" technology. This software will be embedded in the text displayed on screen to dedect users' vocal intonation, mispronunciations, and timing of their speech. It has a great impact on users' success with the app because the software moniters mispronounciation, vocal intonation, timing of speech, and builds vocabulary.

If you pledge any amount of money under $15 you will get a hand-written HEART-FELT thank you note :) 

If you pledge $15-25 you will get a silicon WRISTBAND

Pledge $50 to $100 and receive an AWESOME T-SHIRT with our logo! 

Pledge $500 or more and receive the APP FOR FREE for the first time when it is released on iTunes, PLUS have your name or company's name published as a "Contributor" on our website!!

If we don't reach our funding goal ANY AMOUNT OF MONEY WE RECEIVE will still go toward the development of the app! So this is RISK-FREE investment! 

The Impact

Eye contact is the most essential skill for successful public presentation. Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders struggle to make eye contact in their daily lives. Teachers often get nervous during lecture; college students, debate teams, and Mock Trial competitors need to make eye contact with audiences and opponents; CEOs need to make eye contact as keynote speakers or in important meetings. Furthermore, social anxiety prevents many from excelling in public speaking. Our dream is to successfully increase the eye contact skills, pronunciation, and speaking skills of users in one iOS application. 

Long term benefits for users could be: increased high school graduation rates for individuals, leadership development, better interviewing skills for pre-professional or continuing educational opportunities, successful networking opportunities, and stronger interpersonal relationships. 

Your money will directly contribute to the acceleration of the development of our iPad application, and increase awareness of this venture and product. You are enabling the success of our solution to social skills issues.
