Bring Your Children's Favorite Books To Life With Voice

There is an art to reading a book to a child. You pace your every word, pause at exactly the right moments, and maybe even read their favorite parts one more time. If you're in the mood, you even give each character their own voice and add your own sound effects for the wind whooshing through the trees and the duck quacking in a pond.

Here's How The Military is Using Voice Technology

Voice technology in the military is a sensitive subject. Nobody wants to think about how the benevolent tech helping patients track their meds and supporting children with dyslexia may also be aiding deadly attacks in foreign countries.

But if we're to touch on all the fields where voice tech is making a difference, then the military should be no exception. Besides, highlighting the uses of voice in warfare may inspire new ideas on how voice can help the people caught in the midst of it.

How Voice Assistants are Helping People With Dyslexia


“The world will forgive you if you can’t ride a bike, play the violin, or kick a soccer ball, but society won’t forgive you if you can’t spell, read, or write well.”

Microsoft's New Patent Makes Using Voice Tech in Public Less Awkward

When someone says "smart speaker," most think "Alexa". 

It's a reasonable association since many consider Amazon Alexa the glowing face of voice technology; a crown earned for its relentless progress in the last few years. But Google Assistant is catching up, stepping on Alexa's heels while Samsung's Bixby power-walks a few miles behind.

And Cortana? Well, Cortana is hobbling along with no real intent of running. (Let's spare Siri from the race altogether.)

But Microsoft could jump to the front with its latest voice-first innovation. One that could change how we interact with voice-enabled devices in the future—particularly in public.
