Products for the disabled
The development of speech technologies is especially significant for the disabled:
- computers can read books, news from the Internet, e-mail and SMS messages to the visually impaired,

- the physically disabled can communicate with the devices in their environment,
- automatically recognized speech is easily translated into text which can then be read by people with hearing disabilities.
