Using voice technology to screen for dyslexia

post-image

Irish start-up SoapBox Labs specialises in automatic speech recognition (ASR) and natural language processing (NLP) for kids.

They have just signed a new partnership to use their voice technology to power dyslexia screening.

Dr. Patricia Scanlon, founder and CEO of SoapBox Labs explains: "If you could catch a kid who had dyslexia at 4 or 5 and quickly intervene, instead of at 8 or 9, imagine what that would do for their confidence and their ultimate success not having those four years where they think they can’t read?"
