Google announces Project Understood a new voice technology system that will better support voice recognition systems for people with Down syndrome.

The Canadian Down Syndrome Society along with Google’s Project Euphonia are setting out to make speech technology more accessible to those with disabilities by recording the voices of thousands of participants with Down syndrome to help train and improve its technology.

Voice recognition is playing a more and more vital role in everyday life and for people with disability this kind of technology will make a huge difference in the way they function each day.

Check out the full story here and how you could be part of Project Understood.
