Xavier Barrade + Google: Spell Up
Xavier Barrade has been working on a new Google Chrome Experiment called Spell Up, a word game that helps you improve your English using your voice.
From Xavier: “As a student growing up in France, I was always looking for ways to improve my English, often with a heavy French-to-English dictionary in tow. Since then, technology has opened up a world of new educational opportunities, from simple searches to Google Translate (and our backpacks have gotten a lot lighter). But it can be hard to find time and the means to practice a new language. So when the Web Speech API made it possible to speak to our phones, tablets and computers, I got curious about whether this technology could help people learn a language more easily.”
