We offer accessibility solutions by means of speech synthesis, speech recognition and other technologies. For example, we have tools enabling websites and documents to be read out for those who are sight-impaired or dyslexic, and we are developing tools to enable those with motor disabilities to use computers via speech and dictate texts. In addition, we have Bidaide, a mobile phone app to guide the sight-impaired or those with any kind of disability around museums or along routes; guide instructions and explanations of the items visited can be read or listened to in the visitor’s own language, making the experience fully accessible.

Technical features

For accessibility purposes we have technologies for speech synthesis and speech recognition. Bidaide uses the visitor’s location to guide him/her along outdoor routes by means of GPS, and indoors through various Bluetooth transmitter beacons. To make explanations in various languages available, content is stored via the Internet and from there it is managed by the person in charge of the location. Machine translation is used to translate texts, while speech synthesis is used to produce audio materials.
