Today’s 360 VR Buzz: ‘Ovation’ is a Powerful VR Public Speaking Sim Designed for Professional Training

This was a very interesting BUZZ that I found today and wanted to share with you.

In my years covering VR, I’ve seen several attempts at public speaking simulators, but Ovation, a new app released this week supporting the Rift and Vice, is by far the most comprehensive. It offers up not just an immersive public speaking simulator, but also a backend suite of tools designed for post-speech analysis and feedback.

Available starting this week, Ovation is the most mature take on a VR public speaking simulator that I’ve seen to date. While there’s a handful of other tools out there, most are limited in scope and focus only on individual usage. Ovation, on the other hand, is designed with large-scale deployments and real, data-based training in mind. I got to try Ovation recently and came away impressed with its capabilities, and the fact that it feels like a real product rather than just a prototype.

Inside the headset, Ovation offers up a highly configurable experience for practicing your public speaking. Scenes range from a handful of people in a boardroom to a large group of people in a conference call.

As most any public speaking engagement is supported by some sort of prepared material, you can import a range of ‘Speech Items’ which can be pure text, for placing on virtual notecards or teleprompters; powerpoint slides and PDFs, for showing on projectors and screens; and imported images, to place drawings for on whiteboards. When learning to speak confidently in public, without the use of learning aids it can take longer to become comfortable talking to an audience, so the creation of tools such as this are instrumental in the development of an individual.

You can also use presentation tools and equipment like microphones, laser pointers, presentation remotes (which can advance you virtual presentation slides), and even markers for drawing on a whiteboard as you present.

If you struggle with public speaking, then this may be the perfect tool for helping you become more confident. If technology is not your thing, then perhaps you’d prefer a public speaking course. Find out about great public speaking courses in London which could help you.
