[prMac.com] FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Seaside, CA - March 27, 2007 - The Sound Guy, Inc. has released ChatterBlocker 1.1.2. ChatterBlocker masks the sound of unwanted speech so users can focus on their work, not their co-workers.
ChatterBlocker 1.1.2 Masks Unwanted Conversations So You Can Concentrate at Work
Using a soothing blend of nature sounds, music and background chatter, ChatterBlocker reduces the intelligibility of external conversations.
"Cubicle dwellers can have trouble hearing themselves think when surrounded by irrelevant conversations," said Earl Vickers, CEO of The Sound Guy, Inc. "The intelligibility is often the main source of distraction. ChatterBlocker minimizes the intelligibility in a way that is more effective and less distracting than listening to music, especially music with lyrics."
ChatterBlocker also offers mindfulness meditation tracks intended to increase concentration, reduce distractibility and minimize the stress response to noise.
Version 1.1.2 adds support for aliases to sound files and fixes a bug in the 1.1.1 installer.
