This digital book and machine learning help people with motor neurone disease find their voices again

By allowing more people to experience these things without barriers, games and technology are gradually becoming more accessible and more inclusive. 2021, in particular, is a big step forward for game marketing accessibility, and this year we’ve even seen a dedicated video game accessibility award. However, the seemingly basic functionality that many fans crave is still not implemented in a large number of games. Still, it’s always refreshing to see more games add alternate color modes, large text, voice menus, and more, and a variety of new physical controllers are starting to become available.

Technology is at its best when it comes to uplifting people and balancing the playing field, and this AI-enhanced book by Intel, Dell, Rolls-Royce, and the Motor Neurone Disease Association (MND Association) is a great example of that. This bookby #1 New York Times bestselling author Jill Twiss, titled i will always be me, and is designed to be read aloud in order to collect the reader’s voice and create a digital version. This enables those who are struggling to speak to retain their voice for later use, retaining a part of their identity. It specifically targets people who may be incapacitated, giving them the opportunity to save this unique part of themselves.
