Presentation Trainer: A Toolkit for Learning Non-verbal Public Speaking Skills
The paper presents and outlines the demonstration of Presentation Trainer, a prototype that works as a public speaking instructor. It tracks and analyses the body posture, movements and voice of the user in order to give instructional feedback on non-verbal communication skills. Besides exploring the background of the feedback theory used by the prototype, this paper describes its conceptual implementation and proposes its use and deployment for the conference demonstration.
