Voiceitt lets people with speech impairments use
voice controlled technology
Voice controlled apps are increasing day-by-day
as they are convenient and easy to use. While
messaging is an important part of our lives, the
need of voice controlled technology is also
increasing. People with speech difficulty, find
difficulty in communicating as they are not able
to say what the want to say. The difference
between what they think and what the say, makes
them frustrated. Nearly all our basic necessity
apps like Siri, Amazon Echo even google maps rely
on the voice control feature. According to the
reports, voice controls are changing every field.
They are even expanding in the field of medical,
industries, business and much more. The only
drawback with voice controls is that they leave
the large community of millions of people who
suffer from speech difficulty. Voice controls are
for people who have the strong accent. According
to a survey, about 2 percent of the population
around the world, suffers from speech difficulty
due to conditions like autism, Parkinson's
disease, brain injury, stroke and much more.
Voiceitt, An Israeli startup has raised 2
million in seed funding to translate into clear
conversation. They are trying to fill the gap
that speech difficulty people suffer. It
includes investors like Dreamit Ventures, Amit
Technion, Quake Capital, Buffalo Angels, 1,000
Angels and other angels. To translate the speech
they use smartphones, ipads, tablets to convert
speech which is not intelligible into a speech
which can be easily understandable by every human
being. Which means that this app would help
millions of people around the world to
2
communicate as it helps the other person at the
receiving end to understand what the person is
trying to say. The main clients of the app are
schools, patients suffering from Parkinsons,
stroke, down Syndrome and many more suffering
from speech difficulty.

TiomKin was graduated from Dreamlt Health
accelerator. They did the doctorate in speech
recognition. This new app, voiceitt is simple
and easy to use. First, you have to launch the
app from the app store, then you need to compose
and read short statements such as how are you
or where are you going. Through this, it
records user's pronunciation. People with motor
disabilities, can ask another person to record
phrases for them. After this, the voiceitt would
convert their statement into a normal speech.

aim to help people who cannot talk and make them
feel normal. They wanted those people to
communicate in the most natural way.
