Say-it: Your computer as your Speech Therapist 27.04.2017

Lukas Latacz was interviewed about the spin-off Say-it. A tool is developed jointly by the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and Ghent University. Via an online application, patients perform speech exercises and through well-developed algorithms, they get thorough feedback. As such, it allows them to practice independently, which enriches the sessions with speech therapists.
Two prototypes are being tested by hundreds of speech therapists in Flanders and the Netherlands at the moment and plans exist to commercialize the tool and research how to expand its possibilities in other languages.
