Google IO Miracles for those that Can’t Read

Okay, hey guys Mark Phillips with SimpliSpoken back again for another SimpliSpoken on Voice Daily Flash Briefing, good to be back with you guys talking a little bit more about Google IO. And some of those announcements following up on yesterday where we talked about increasing access for the disabled. There’s another group that in the world, maybe it’s not as prevalent in the United States, but it is prevalent in a lot of countries where folks haven’t learned to read. And they haven’t learned to read for various reasons, including the fact that they, you know, spend a lot of time trying to survive and give their families a life and they, unfortunately, didn’t have time to learn to read. So the demonstration was a young mother that actually could use the Google device to scan ATM text or text on product boxes on the shelf. And this enables this young mother that could not read to then go and participate basically, in life, you know, to she, this opened up a new world for her. And again, much in the same vein as increasing access for the disabled that can’t speak imagine the world that’s opened up for you if you cannot read. And all of a sudden you have a device that actually can process the text and speak it out loud to you and allow you to participate in things as simple things that we absolutely take for granted. And so just another example of Google taking a kind of a leadership position and trying to do something to make the world a better place. And so kudos again to Google for doing that. It was a moving demonstration. I think that the audience was appropriately wild. And I think this is a great way to help those that are much less fortunate in life. So hey, we’ll be back again tomorrow. Please do take a minute to get over to the Amazon skill store. Give us good reviews SimpliSpoken on Voice Daily Flash Briefing. Thanks a lot guys talk again tomorrow.
