Google and the Reeves Foundation
Alright, hey guys, Mark Phillips with SimpliSpoken This is the SimpliSpoken on Voice Daily Flash briefing, and we’re back again, talking about the recent announcements that have come out from Google. I know Cathy Pearl did some work to talk about this at the voice conference. And it’s really and then you saw a big announcement from Google recently. And so they’ve really put out a push or some thought leadership around helping individuals with disabilities and in many cases, paralysis and partnership with the reef foundation. And so you may remember, the Reeves Foundation was founded by an actor and his wife, who, you know, the actor who played Superman in a lot of movies had become paralyzed through a accident. And they have a foundation now he’s since passed away, but they have a foundation now in partnership with Google, they’re providing devices for folks with paralysis to help them control their environment as and disabilities, if you will. So it’s really cool, because this helps those folks with independence. So there’s a host of folks that have talked about the real difference that it makes in their lives to have a product like Google nest and Google Home, many that allow them to control their environment, when they don’t have the ability to do that, via their arms or other other methods. So they use their voice, to give them a sense of independence and allow them to, to really change their life and maybe just remove some barriers and obstacles. And so, accessibility is is really on our radar at this point. And we think the work that Google has done there, and their effort to bring some of this technology to folks that can really benefit that way is something we all applaud. Alright, so hey, thanks a lot guys. This is the SimpliSpoken on Voice Daily Flash Briefing.
