Google has revealed Project Relate, "a new Android app that aims to help people with speech impairments communicate more easily with others and interact with the Google Assistant." The company is seeking early testers to help refine the app. After personalizing the app by speaking a set of phrases to train it, users can access three key functions. Ther first is "Listen", which transcribes speech into text. Others can read the text from the screen, or it can be cop-and-pasted into other apps. A Repeat mode takes the user's unique speech patterns and restates what they have said using a synthesized voice that is easier for other people (and devices) to understand. Finally, the app provides direct access to Google Assistant, so that Assistant can understand someone with a speech impairment as clearly as anyone else. If you have a condition that makes your speech difficult to understand, you can apply to help provide feedback on the Project Relate Android app as a trusted tester. Google has a long history of developing new accessibility solutions, and eventually folding them into its products, including Android.
