Photos: Apple's iPhone Finds New Use in Treating Stuttering at Hollins Communications Research Institute
Date:1/21/2009

Roll-out Scheduled for Week of January 26, 2009

ROANOKE, Va., Jan. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Scientists at Hollins Communications Research Institute (HCRI - www.stuttering.org), a leading center for stuttering research and treatment innovation, have just completed successful trials using Apple's iPhone as a stuttering therapy tool to enhance the transfer of new fluency skills from the clinical setting into real-life situations.

To view the Multimedia News Release, go to: http://www.prnewswire.com/mnr/hcri/36719/

The iPhone device was programmed at HCRI with a sophisticated voice monitoring system that evaluates and scores speech behaviors taught during stuttering therapy. When clients use the device during training in outside situations, such as in a shopping mall, restaurant or business setting, fluency measurements for each utterance are displayed on the iPhone screen. Having this data immediately available to stuttering therapy program participants makes speech practice more effective and helps improve the speed with which fluency results are achieved.

In addition, the iPhone records every speech sample in an onboard file for later transmission to HCRI. This information enables the institute's therapists to provide more detailed and precise training to clients, as they learn to apply new speech capabilities in everyday situations.

The iPhone has exceeded expectations during trials with stuttering therapy participants, according to HCRI Founder and President Ronald L. Webster, Ph.D. Client scores in outside trials were similar to those made in the clinical environment, indicating that quality transfer of fluency skills was being attained.
