If you want to get hold of the software that provides Stephen Hawking with a voice, you can now do so with ACAT (Assistive Context-Aware Toolkit). The source code of this application has been released by Intel so that anyone who wants to can continue improving the platform.

A great aid system for disabled people.

Thus, anyone with a physical or neuronal disability can have more possibilities when it comes to communicating and relating to their surroundings.

What are the possibilities of this software?

  • This system offers the possibility to improve communications thanks to word predictions and voice synthesis.
  • Simplifies tasks such as browsing the Internet, editing files, managing documents or accessing emails, by means of a virtual keyboard.

The development of new interfaces and new prediction models based on this open-source platform can be very useful for anyone who needs them.
