Effect Technologies, Inc., maker of the patented EffectCheck® software for emotional analysis of communications, has introduced another upgrade to EffectCheck. The upgrade provides subscribers with the ability to assess the lexical emotional impact of speeches from governors of the Federal Reserve with respect to anxiety, hostility, depression, confidence, compassion, and happiness.

"When the Federal Reserve governors speak, their emotional nuances can be important," said Dr. Yanon Volcani, CEO and Co-Founder of Effect Technologies, Inc. "We've examined all of the published speeches from the Fed governors going back three years with respect to their levels of anxiety, hostility, depression, confidence, compassion, and happiness. Now subscribers to EffectCheck will be able to assess future speeches and determine how their lexical emotional impact may vary from historical norms."

EffectCheck is the only patented software that provides lexical analysis of words and phrases from a 50,000-word emotional thesaurus within an easy-to-use online editor, and provides subscribers with the opportunity to explore word substitutions, word impressions, and understand the flow of lexical emotion in their communications.
