Mexico, Sep. 13 (Notimex) .- Voice detection applications for cell phones or computers do not detect the legibility of people with speech problems and, therefore, the startup Voiceitt has emerged as a translation tool between this sector of population and electronic devices.
Creators, Danny Weissberg, executive director, and Stas Tiomkin, technology manager, explained that the app asks the user to write and read short phrases aloud such as "I'm thirsty" or "turn off the light" so that the software records and learns the pronunciation particular of the user.
Ensure that after a brief training period, the Voiceitt application can convert the user's spoken communications into a standard speech.
The application is already available in several languages, including Spanish, according to Fuente Latina, an organization dedicated to spreading the scientific and technological advances of Israel.
Danny Weissberg acknowledged that the idea of the project came about when her grandmother suffered a stroke that left her with speech difficulties.
"Losing this ability is really terrible. I started talking to speech therapists and occupational therapists, to learn everything I could about this problem and see if there was a market with a specific need to cover”, he said.
This is how the Israeli startup application was created, which originated in the DreamIt Health accelerator of health-related technology ventures and currently has investors such as Amit Technion, Dreamit Ventures, Quake Capital and Buffalo Angels.
