App makes communication easy for people with speech problems
Jellow Communicator India is a free Android app, started by the Industrial Design Centre (IDC) and the Indian Institute of Technology – Bombay (IITB).
The app can be used for communication by kids learning to speak or those having speech difficulties. It aims to empower slow learners, children with autism, cerebral palsy, Down’s syndrome and other types of speech impairment.
The app has nine icons or images that show steps to do daily activities such as greet and meet, eating, people, places, time and weather.
For example, the activity of brushing teeth is broken into three steps. Step 1 is put toothpaste on the brush, Step 2 is brush and left sides, Step 3 is rinse.
Users can go through the app in English and Hindi languages.
