PERFORMANCE FEEDBACK

Check your performance objectively. For instance, a classical method to assure good eye contact is to divide the room into sections, alternating your viewing between them. Training with this method is easy in Virtual Orator; it provides a visual report of how you are doing. Do you talk in mono-tone? Integrated pitch analysis will let you know.

RECORD SESSIONS
