App lets the blind in India read in their mother tongue
August 6, 2016
Vision-impaired people in India often find it difficult to get an audiobook they want in the language they need it in.
Now a project from Carnegie Mellon University and its partners is trying to address that with a free Android app called Hear2Read that can be quickly trained to read texts aloud in local languages.
Hear2Read has been released supporting Tamil at the moment and other languages like Hindi, Bengali, Punjabi, as well as dialects will be released later this year.
The Hear2Read software also integrates with Android's built-in accessibility functions, letting browsers, email apps, and others integrate text to speech.
