what's this then?

More or less it's an app you can install on your smartphone. It repeats everything you say on the mic back to you at a settable delay, typically half a second or so. The sound of your own voice talking over yourself triggers a reflex pause in your speech and more or less gives you verbal Parkinsons.

On the OTHER hand, the exact same technology has been used to correct a stutter in a kid who could barely get a sentence out. They strapped this thing on him and he did a speech in front of his whole school.

It just has the fun effects of fucking up those of us with normal speech patterns.

If you get it, use headphones otherwise your device will feedback on itself like a motherfucker.

thank you.

That kinda sounds like fun and now I want to try it. If you're already used to talking in crowded places (for example I worked in a call center years ago where we all said the exact same script at different times, usually a few seconds apart and only used the one-earphone headset, ostensibly so our bosses could shout at us and make sure they heard you) would you be better? I mean, it wasn't my voice but hearing what I was about to say or what I had just said from both sides never really got to me. But then again, why would I want to try something that brings back memories of the worst job I ever had?

Yet another job-creating commercial venture brought to you by the Military-Industrial Complex! As seen on Guantanamo Shark Tank!

This is why I only use zero-latency monitoring on my setup.

He's wearing headphones that repeat what he said to him. The speech center of your brain does NOT like this.

If you can use zero latency these days. In radio before digital processing and stream feeds, it was a big deal that a DJ could monitor the signal off air in their headphones, so they could hear the final mix that listeners were getting.

Nowadays there's so much delay, and so much effort is being put into getting low latency, where I think audio pros would do better to give up monitoring the final mix, and just use an in-studio replica with low delay.

He hasn't got a speech jammer, he just likes to retard it out.
