Oral expression and communication is one of the most important competencies for personal, academic, professional and civic life[3]. According to the American Society of Personnel Administrators [1], it is considered that a good oral communication skill is important for obtaining a job, and for a good efficiency at work [2]. The main objective of this project is to obtain a Software tool that is able to obtain a series of features of a subject from automatic audiovisual analysis. The extraction of the features obtained from the oral and nonverbal language is something of particular interest in the analysis of psychological factors that a subject presents. This analysis is useful to improve the quality of oral communication: presentations, job interviews, etc. This is the ultimate goal of the project. The system has been applied to 15 end career project videos and presentations of fourth course students. It has been created a version that analyzes a recording and other that makes it in realtime via WebCam.
