‘Bolo’ app

Context: 

  • Recently Google has launched a new application called ‘Bolo’ that aims to help children in primary school to read in Hindi and English.

About the App:

  • The app, which is being launched in India first, uses Google’s speech recognition and text-to-speech technology.
  • It comes with a built-in fun and helpful reading buddy, an animated character called ‘Diya’. The reading material available on the app will be completely free of cost.
  • The app aims to help improve the reading ability of children, as the lack of it can significantly impact further education and ultimately children’s ability to realise their full potential.
