After researching into stammering I was empowered to create a product to help people live with their stammer. The aim was to get people to engage with their stammer in order to help them come to terms with it.
From a UX perspective ideas and prototypes were created and tested within my stammer focus group which was a network with potential users. From a UI/visual perspective the visual style was developed with advice from animators, illustrators and graphic designers.
Speech Bubble is an app designed to help people positively reflect on their stammer and realise that it’s not just about speech.
My Role: Creator
How It Works
The aim of Speech Bubble is to get people to engage with their stammer in order to help them come to terms with it. this is done in 3 simple steps. Users reflect on speaking situation when they happen, which creates them a visual or they can share it in the wider community with others who have a stammer.
I thoroughly enjoyed creating Speech Bubble and it was great to get acknowledgement from the stammering community, including therapists, organisations and those who stammer. I hope to one day to be able to launch Speech Bubble as a product to help a community so close to my heart.
