Meet Willow: Intelligent Voice Analysis

We’re thrilled to introduce Willow, our intelligent voice analysis engine. Built right into the LearningBranch platform, Willow evaluates learners’ spoken English skills instantly and automatically.

With Willow you can automate and improve recruitment testing and training processes to boost customer satisfaction.  

With Willow, you’ll have the tool you need.

Why Willow?

Consistent scoring

Complement your team with automated, consistent scoring. Willow is trained with tens of thousands of recordings, so you get accurate, reliable scores every time. 

Broad analysis

Willow checks more than 100 features of speech on every learner recording. Scores are based on:

  • pronunciation features, like vowel and consonant accuracy
  • grammar, like word order and omission
  • fluency features, like word repetition, pauses and duration
  • other features, such as loudness

As strict as you want it

Everyone has an accent. We think the goal is clearly spoken English that people can easily understand. With a strict, medium and lax setting, you can tune the engine exactly to your liking.
