Submitted the Round 1 entry in Imagine Cup, Microsoft !

Imagine Cup, Poland

We have participated in a Touch and Tablet Accessibility award in a Imagine Cup 2010, Microsoft. The round 1 entry was consisting of the submission of the abstract related to the topics given for this year’s competition. We have selected the topic “Vision Difficulties and Impairment”.

We have proposed a ‘Text to Speech Converter using Prosody’ for the blind peoples. This will surely help them understanding the meaning of the sentence as the speech will deliver containing the emotions using the Touch feature in the Tablet PC. Hoping to get into the Round 2 !
