Better understand how messages are perceived by your end user with the IBM Watsons Tone Analyzer. The service breaks your communication down sentence by sentence using linguistic analysis to detect three types of tones. Emotions (including anger, fear, joy, sadness, and disgust) and social tendencies (the 5 most prominent personality traits used by psychologists like openness, conscientiousness, extroversion, agreeableness, and emotional range) while language styles include confident, analytical, and tentative.

Intended Use

Anyone could use the Tone Analyzer. Use the service for:

  • Personal and business communications. Get feedback that boosts effectiveness of your communications and even optimize  for different audiences.
