How does Handy Truster work?
someone tells a lie, their voice carries a sonic wave that
cannot be controlled. Capitalizing on the wave that
is created, the Handy Truster uses an IC chip voice
recognition technology which senses the stress in the voice
and judges the excitement, tension and emotional agony through
a scientific analysis and revolutionary algorithm. This
enables the Handy Truster to distinguish the truthfulness
or falsehood of a statement and determine the level
of stress when one is making a statement. This technology
is considered controversial since it is essentially monitoring
events that are going on inside our heads.
got different messages when asking the same person the same
The results you get really depend on the context
of the situation. Controlled (i.e. job interview, interrogation)
or spontaneous environments (free conversation) will yield
very different results. We are testing cognitive stress
in the speech, so when lies are not pre-planned the lie
stress will appear in a dramatic way. In a controlled environment,
lies may appear in several ways starting with extreme excitement,
extreme stress, and even extremely low cognitive stress.
That is why the tester must analyze the controlled environment
How long does it take
Truster to analyze the subject's voice ?
There is only a half second delay between the live
voice and the result.
long does it take to calibrate the subject's voice?
The calibration is the most important part of the
test. If you adjusted your computer's microphone as specified
in the User Guide, the calibration process should only take
up to 10 seconds. In that time, Truster gathers six different
samples of the subject's voice to base the test on.
if the subject has a cold? Will Truster still work?
The same subject can sound different at various times
in the day and that is why we recommend calibrating before
each conversation. It is advised not to check people that
have any kind of sickness that can alter the way they normally
express themselves. If there is no choice, be aware of the
general deviation in the voice while interpreting results.
is the basis for asserting that Truster is highly accurate?
We recommend that you use Truster as a decision-support
tool and not rely solely on its results to make decisions.
It has been tested and approved by experts worldwide but
much of the interpretation phase has to do with the expertise
of the person asking the questions.
Is The Handy Truster Used For?
The Handy Truster can used to check the truthfulness of a person
with whom you are speaking. The truster can also be used to
check your own tension before having an interview. The Handy Truster is a device for detecting emotions in the human
voice, and is best utilized as a decision support tool. Handy Truster and its distributors
make no guarantees of the accuracy of the product and results
may vary based on individual use and adherence to instructions.
