Top Chinese smartphone brand Huawei consistently brings new useful apps and their updates. Recently, Huawei launched its App Gallery (app store) globally while also launched other apps like Huawei Wallet, Huawei 3D moderator app on Google Play. Now in the latest development, Huawei has launched another highly useful app for deaf children to help them learn reading.
The app named StorySign shows up sentences along with the respective body gestures that go along with every text that is currently underlined and is pointed towards. Generally, children that are deaf in the society don’t get access to education easily where they could learn to read and teachers and parents, on the other hand, don’t know sign language to educate them. With StorySign, Huawei aims to change all this using its AI-powered app.
StorySign used artificial intelligence to convert text into sign language which is then presented by an avatar that begins to translate those words along. This means that parents/teachers could literally teach any book to deaf children using StorySign. Currently, there are very few books available through the app to consume while support 10 sign languages through it.
Though we could certainly expect a lot of great content coming to StorySign in the future. Do you see this app taking off? Let us know in the comment section below.
