Microsoft, in collaboration with Made by Dyslexia, a non-profit organization, has successfully developed a set of artificial intelligence learning tools to provide a variety of learning support for students with reading and writing difficulties, the Hong Kong Economic Daily of China reported on the morning of October 24.
Learning tools include converting phonetics into words, real-time translation, and digitizing entity text, which simplify the learning process and enhance their ability to understand mathematical problems. In addition, Microsoft will work with the University of Washington to develop and test a new tool designed to help children with dysphonia.
Microsoft also said it would work with Made by Dyslexia to create free teacher and parent training materials at the Microsoft Educator Community by the end of January 2009.
The Microsoft Learning Tool, which is free for educators and students, has helped more than 14 million children around the world improve literacy.
