- The industry’s only solution that offers personalized pronunciation and writing exercises from highly trained tutors who are native speakers.
- The industry’s only completely mobile solution — Learners on iOS and Android can set up their account, set their goals and proficiency level, study, and take ongoing assessments to measure their progress over time. Learners can go from invitation email to fluency solely on their mobile device.
- TruAccent® Speech Recognition Engine — Rosetta Stone’s patented speech recognition technology, TruAccent, is the most accurate pronunciation engine available. Rather than using simple pattern recognition like other speech engines, TruAccent references thousands of hours of recorded speech data to train its statistical models on sound patterns and grammar found in natural language. Through machine learning, the models continuously train and improve TruAccent over time, so users have the best pronunciation and accent guidance available today.
- Seek & SpeakTM — Using object-recognition technology and augmented reality, Seek & Speak turns everyday objects into conversation practice with scavenger hunt-style challenges. Seek & Speak enables users to point their phone’s camera at an object and receive a translation in their language of choice, and then practice conversation using the newly obtained vocabulary with Rosetta Stone’s proprietary speech recognition engine, TruAccent.
- Offline mode allows users to download lessons for on-the-go learning when wifi isn’t available.
- Administrative and reporting tools allow managers to monitor employees’ progress and compare them to trends across teams, departments and the company, as well as calculate return on investment.
