Tips for using speaker coach

If you’re creating a presentation video or following a script, take a look at our helpful tips below. 

  • 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

Before we get started with the tutorial, please note that speaker coach is currently available to our English-speaking M365 and Essentials users recording videos using our camera recorder, and camera and screen recorder.  

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. Locate our camera recorder feature 

To use the speaker coach feature, you must record your video directly in Clipchamp’s video editor. Click on the record & create tab on the toolbar, then click either screen and camera or camera buttons. For this tutorial, we have chosen the camera recording tab. 

A pop-up window will appear with microphone and camera settings, and the speaker coach feature. Here, you can turn on the speaker coach.

Step 2. Turn on the speaker coach feature 

Click on the turn on speaker coach button.  

Your preview should now look like this.

Step 3. Record your video

Click on the red record button to start recording your video.

Click on the red stop button to stop recording.

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. 

Here, you will be able to view filler words, pace, intonation, and repetitive language. Take a screenshot to save your speaker coach analysis. Click on the back button when you’re finished reviewing and ready to edit your video.

Step 5. Save and edit your recording

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

Once you save and return to the editor, you will no longer be able to view your speaker coach analytics.
