An interactive, tactile language learning tool, allowing you to feel how you sound.

Voice Blox is the first language learning tool to embody pronunciation as a simple physical form, allowing users to explore their accent with their hands. Mandarin speakers teach tones with small finger gestures that mimic the 4 fundamental tones. We have found a way to teach everyone this intuitive tonal language using simple shapes to guide a learner’s hand – making tones easy.

Voice Blox deconstructs and tracks your vocal frequencies using Fourier analysis. The master surface (top) shows the ideal pronunciation, while the mirror block (bottom) moves to match how you sound. Run your finger along the surfaces to hear and feel how you sound in comparison.
