App lets visually impaired in India hear books in their native language

App lets visually impaired in India hear books in their native language

Social Impact projects are heartwarming because those who are in need directly benefit. An app called Hear2Read developed at Carnegie Mellon translates books of one language into audio books of another to assist blind readers. The app currently knows Tamil (an Indian and Sri Lankan language) and is slated to learn a slew of others in a year's time.
