A creative teacher in the US, is animating video-screen avatars to link with children with SEN such as deafness, DS and autism, in her teaching-group.
The software for this interactive learning offers varied animals, robots and stick people as characters. A teacher and/or student chooses a ‘persona’ and inputs text, for that character to speak in a short video-animation.
Children who can hear spoken words with residual or processed hearing would be able to use this software. For other kids, automatic speech-to-text-generated captions may need building into the product for accessibility.
