ObjectiveEd received a grant from Microsoft's AI for Accessibility for our innovation Braille AI Tutor.
Braille AI Tutor is one of the technologies in the ObjectiveEd suite. It lets a student improve their braille literacy using a braille display and speech recognition.
Here's how it works:
You create your lesson content at the ObjectiveEd web-dashboard.
Braille AI Tutor sends one word or sentence at a time to the refreshable braille display.
The student speaks the sentence as she reads the braille words.
Braille AI Tutor sends the audio to the Microsoft Speech Recognition Service.
The words, as text, are sent back to Braille AI Tutor
Braille AI Tutor compares what the student spoke - as words - to the sentence sent to the braille display. If it's the same, the child scores points in the game.
Lessons that match what your students enjoy
Just like with Braille Sheets, you can create your own lesson (or search the Professional Network for another teacher's lesson) that matches your students interest and requirements.
