FreeSpeech will revolutionize the way you look at, and work with, language.
Check out this TED talk to learn more about it.
FreeSpeech is a way of representing ideas visually, and a way of converting the representation into perfectly grammatical, meaningful English (or any other language). Instead of stringing words together as sentences, you can use FreeSpeech to create maps of images, to represent ideas in a completely language-independent way.
Ongoing research shows that children with autism, dyslexia and other disabilities may be able to develop language through FreeSpeech much more effectively than through English.
FreeSpeech can be used for learning a new language without using a bridge language. That's similar to how we learn a native language!
The FreeSpeech engine codifies the entire English language, and so it can be used to check and correct grammar much better than sentence-based tools.
What if you could send an e-mail, or create a document, and people could read it in any language they want to?
magine a Wikipedia in FreeSpeech! With the appropriate engine, anyone could consume its information in the language they are most comfortable with.
Using FreeSpeech, you could build complex sentences - and then convert them into any language you want to. It's the world's best travel phrasebook.
From story-telling to pictionary to jigsaw puzzles, FreeSpeech could be the base for innumerable fun, educational games.
We created FreeSpeech based on our work with children with special needs, between 2008 and 2013. We used it to build Avaz, the award-winning app for children with autism. An English language teaching app, based on FreeSpeech, has been licensed by the Government of India, to teach English as a first language to millions of students in India.
Products based on FreeSpeech have won numerous awards, including being on MIT's TR35 list of transformative inventions in 2011 (link) and the National Award for Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities, India's highest award for work in this space. It has been the topic of 2 TED talks, including one at the TED Conference in Long Beach, CA in 2013.
If you are excited about the potential of FreeSpeech for your application, please let us know! We would be happy to work with you, to develop incredible FreeSpeech-based apps for you, and to license both FreeSpeech and the FreeSpeech engine for your use.
