PaceRecorder is a simple Android app that records your voice and gives you instant feedback about the pace with which you are speaking. The feedback comes in the form of three simple symbols; a turtle, a rabbit, and a thumbs-up. If the turtle appears while you’re speaking it indicates that you’re relaxed or perhaps a bit too slow. The rabbit indicates excitement and perhaps that you’re speaking a bit too quickly. And, of course, the thumbs-up means you’re right on track.
Here is a demo of PaceRecorder.
