"Project Relate" from Google wants help testing its speech recognition software


Google is launching a new speech recognition app called Project Relate. The tech giant is working on improving voice assistant technology for those with impaired speech and wants their help in testing its latest application.


Keeping true to its mission to leave no one behind, this Google Android app’s goal is to help people with speech impairment communicate more effectively and easily with others as well as interact with Google Assistant.


Google AI Product Manager, Julie Cattiau, described the app in a recent blog post stating:


“For millions of people, being able to speak and be understood can be difficult as a result of conditions that can impact speech, including stroke, ALS, Cerebral Palsy, traumatic brain injury, or Parkinson's disease. Today, we’re inviting an initial group of people to test Project Relate, a new Android app that aims to help people with speech impairments communicate more easily with others and interact with the Google Assistant.”
