Children given a voice through software

5th June 2009

Scientists claim to have developed the first technology of its kind to allow children with communication problems to converse better.

The system is the result of a project between computing scientists from the Universities of Aberdeen and Dundee, and Capability Scotland and will help children with disabilities such as cerebral palsy communicate faster. The software, called How Was School Today?, uses sensors, swipe cards, and a recording device to gather information on what the child using the system has experienced at school that day.
