Bridging the Digital Divide for the Blind and Low Vision population using Text To Speech Assistive Technology.

Have you ever browsed the internet, our most basic need today - while blindfolded? You would say “what's the use”. For a Visually Impaired (VI) person, the crucible of information that is the internet is far out of reach without text to speech technology.

Everyone with a Smart Phone uses Text To Speech (TTS) software without even thinking about it for Navigation while driving or walking.

The same technology allows VI users to read electronic content by listening, hence the phrase “Reading without Seeing”. Text to Speech (TTS) options have been widely available for English and other western languages for more than a decade. With proper accessibility tools, people with Vision Impairment (VI) can be just as effective and productive as people with normal sight in most professional jobs, including banking, engineering and teaching.

Children learn best in their native language. We cannot expect Visually Impaired children to first learn English and then use the Text to Speech software to read books, news articles, do homework in English instead of their mother tongue spoken by their family & friends.

Hear2Read fills this void. Using open source Text to Speech technology, Hear2Read volunteers have released portable software for both Android devices and Windows PCs.
