The Value of the Verbalucce Project
Verbalucce fosters better digital communication where the lack of facial and vocal cues can contribute to misunderstandings. It provides information about how people are coming across and gives them tools to communicate in a way that make for greater understanding andbetter relationships. Verbalucce can also act as a teaching tool-showing how to emulate an admired communication style. It can also be used to improve cross-cultural communication, facilitating a more business-like or less formal style -- as appropriate to cultural norms which Verbalucce can help identify.
Technically, Verbalucce is a speech engine that analyzes text communication, initially within Gmail. The extension provides real time feedback to users about congruency within an email exchange. This immediate feedback compares similarity in sentiment, message length and language style. In addition, historical analytics allow users to compare communication across relationships along dimensions such as formality and emotional expression.
Who It's For
Veralucce is for system solution designers who are seeking to add customer value to their products that target people wanting to improve their relationships with informed communication styles.
Verbalucce is written in the Python language, under the Apache Version 2.0 open source license.
