VR Training for Public Speaking in an innovative training for combating social phobia of public speaking. The Virtual Reality will introduce the participant into a simulation of public speaking and evaluate the behavior on real time for encouraging the participant in effective public speaking and manage negative states . 

The Virtual Reality Public Speaking Training has the following functionalities

a) simulation of a through VR glasses
b) gradual exposition from easy scenarios to more complicated ones
c) evaluate through psychological survey the states of phobia, anxiety, self-efficacy of public speaking and satisfaction
d) evaluate head movement and give a feedback to the participant
e) evaluate quality of the speech through voice indicators and give a feedback to the participant
f) a dedicated avatar which will give tailor based on time suggestions to the user for increasing the quality of public speaking
g) evaluate eye contact with the audience and give a feedback to the participants
h) produce an impact report automatically through the VR App
i) free and open download for Google App

To achieve the objectives of the project (better public speaking performance and reduced negative psychological states), the development of gamification systems is proposed. A video game based on Virtual Reality will be created. A virtual environment will be created through which the beneficiary will be immersed in a virtual conference room. In this conference room, the user will comply with the task of doing an speach regarding a theme proposed by the platform.

This video game will have the following characteristics:

- It will include different scenarios: different scenarios will be developed in which the auditorium is empty, scenarios in which the auditorium is full, scenarios in which the auditorium is

full and the audience speaking, etc. These different scenarios will represent different levels of difficulty, from simpler to more complicated.

- Automated evaluation of work quality: The system will collect the following speech quality indicators:
o Visual contact with the public: the system will evaluate if the user looks at the audience.
o Head movement: the system will evaluate the user's head movements to detect stress situations, etc.
o Voice tone: the system will evaluate the volume level when the user speaks.
o Speech time: accounting of the time you have spent on speach.
