The visual cue allows you to compare your speaking rate and match the reference audio during your next attempt.
This prosodic feature is important in making your pronunciation more similar to American English. A closer match indicates improvement.
SpeakAP uses the most accurate pitch measurement available in the market.
Note: The absolute pitch value will be different for male and female users but the important information for pronunciation is in the relative change in pitch with time.
