BoldVoice (YC S21) is an AI-powered accent and speech coaching app that empowers the over 500 million non-native English speakers in the global workforce to speak English clearly and confidently, in order to succeed professionally. (TechCrunch feature) (Hacker News feature)

Users spend 15 minutes a day learning new concepts from Hollywood speech coaches, such as how to pronounce tricky sounds, or how to properly use intonation, and then improve their accent skills by going through words, sentences, and conversations with real-time feedback on their accent.
