About the solution

This system allows people with language disabilities to convert their texts into audio via Skype, allowing people to speak with anyone in any part of the globe, in real time, via audio.

The Civil Government of Faro has been using this technology in some public services, such getting you passport, identity card, etc, allowing speaking disabled patients to be better understood.

“It’s important to get to know the difficulties disabled people face on their daily lives. I want to help to develop science so it can help with social integration”, the engineer observed.

The software can be downloaded for free and is being adapted to several languages.

Paulo also idealized Easy Right, a text-entry method that allows people with coordination limitations to use small mobile device.

Paulo created Easy House, a mobile app to turn on and off the lights of the house, close and open doors, and to turn off the coffee machine, in order to help disabled people to interact with their surroundings.
