  • This is the kind of app I would recommend to all my ESL teachers friends, because I want the type of feedback it offers.

    KSchroed, ESL teacher
  • This app is excellent it reminds you of Rosetta Stone. Looking forward to more lessons.

    Valerie W, Speech Language Pathologist
  • This app is the best ever. It is been very helpful to improve my pronunciation. Comparing my pronunciation with a native is really a breakthrough. I would like to be able to customize it with words that I have difficulties. In summary, this is a great app with a bright future.

    Tabare, Application user
  • Awesome app. I was initially apprehensive to buy it, but was positively surprised once I started using it. The app does a great job at analyzing the pronunciation and soon enough you start realizing the pattern where you generally go wrong. Looking forward for the next release with more words.

    RD789, Application user
  • That is a mold breaker. Great thinking.

Biologically-inspired signal processing solutions

Web monitoring


  • Our technology uses biologically plausible artificial intelligence models for a system that is easy to use, and runs on Apple iOS devices. It is specifically designed for high accuracy and capable of running on a low-computational power embedded platform for daily use. An on-line speech dashboard enables tracking of your health and interfacing with your speech therapist. Facilitating clinical therapy outside of the clinics.
Speech & Language disorders

MyLynel PRO

  • Our technology allows real world monitoring using sophisticated speech processing. Used as an adjunct to speech therapy, it is specifically designed to help clients and their speech therapists through exercises in speech therapy techniques, track conversations, secondary behaviours, and speech-related features between therapy sessions. The goal is to improve the transfer of skills and decrease chance of relapse.
Accent & Pronunciation


  • Our novel technology provides automated scoring and analysis to compare your accent, articulation and pronunciation to the reference speech. The algorithms process your speech to provide a similarity score for each of the three primary components of spoken American English and analysis of the FIVE speech characteristics of 1) phonetics, 2) speaking rate, 3) stress, 4) pitch and 5) intonation.
Cardiovascular monitoring

Heart Disease

  • Forces generated by the heart cause motion of blood through the body and are measured in pressure and volume. In a weakening heart, fluid backs up into the lungs making it very difficult for people to breathe or carry out simple physical activities. Resulting in increased morbidity. AventuSoft is developing a new approach to improve outcomes by enabling continuous monitoring using a state-of-the-art non-invasive approach.
