Yandex Launches SoundsEasy Skill for Alice to Help Children with Speech Disorders

Yandex has released a new Alice skill (for Alice enabled devices) to aid children with speech problems. After extensive testing for a year with speech therapists, Yandex have announced the release via their blog.

According to Russia’s former Minister of Education, nearly 60% of school children struggle with speech problems.

Our intelligent assistant, Alice, has been central to this effort, offering educational and developmental support through skills such as “guess the animal” and math games that promote cognitive learning. Last year, our in-house creative team set out to create a skill for Alice that would specifically address an important childhood development issue in Russia using our AI.
