Are you recording a webcam video, sharing your screen and webcam, or creating a voice recording? Get real-time feedback to improve your presentation skills, become a more confident presenter, and create engaging videos using speaker coach.

Using smart technology, our speaker coach feature filters words, detects repetitive language, and supplies feedback to you on the pitch and pace of your recorded speech and video.  

Explore how to use the speaker coach feature in Clipchamp.

Tips for using speaker coach

If you’re creating a presentation video or following a script, take a look at our helpful tips below. Users recording a video with the screen and webcam recorder and audio recorder have the ability to use speaker coach.

  • Make sure your internal or external microphone can hear your speech.  

  • Check your internet connection and make sure it’s strong.  

  • We recommend recording your video to review with audio in a quiet place to avoid misinterpretations.  

  • Speaker coach may not work well if more than one person is speaking at a time.  

  • Screenshot your speaker coach pitch and pace analysis to save it.  

How to use speaker coach when recording a video or voiceover

Note: Users recording a video or audio with the screen and webcam recorder, online webcam recorder, screen recorder, and audio recorder have the ability to use speaker coach.

Speaker Coach is also one of the cloud-enhanced features in Microsoft 365 and is powered by Microsoft Speech Services. Your speech utterances will be sent to Microsoft to provide you with this service.

Step 1. Select a recording feature

To use the speaker coach feature, you must record your video directly in Clipchamp. Click on the record & create tab on the toolbar, then click either screen and camera, camera, screen, or audio button.

For this tutorial, we have chosen to use the online webcam recorder

Step 4. Review speaker coach analysis

Before saving and editing your video, you can review your speech analysis for feedback on your pitch and pace of speaking. If you do not click on the review speech button before returning to the editor, you will not be able to see your speech analytics for that recording.

Step 5. Save your recording to return to the editor

Saving options will appear. To save or retake your video, click retake or click save and edit button to return to the editor.
