Hfactor© is a speech correction app created to help correct the “H-factor” impediment, a phenomenon which is prevalent amongst peoples of Western Nigeria. At the time of its launch, it will be the most intuitive and sophisticated solution available on the market for correcting this speech impediment.
Currently in its developmental state, this app will be made available on both Android and iOS stores and will provide a fun-learning effective experience for users.
The H-Factor phenomenon “occurs” when words which don’t carry the “h” sound are pronounced with an “h” preceding the actual word or when words that ordinarily should be pronounced starting with “h” are enunciated without the “h”. It occurs when those with this speech impediment attempt to pronounce words that start with a vowel (i.e. words which when pronounced begin with a, e, i, o, or u), or attempt to pronounce words that begin with “h” immediately followed by a vowel sound.
