Product Overview

"We human beings have successfully developed machines that can read and write, but we have met only with very limited success in our attempts to developmachines that can think and learn. Our brains are better suited to learn and thinkthan any machine that we have invented until this point in time.

"The inability of human beings to read or write should not sentence them to livesof poverty, unemployment, and continued illiteracy. "Thoughteracy for All"proposes an innovative way to improve the lives of the illiterate.

Author M. O. Thirunarayanan offers an intriguing solution to this problem.Thirunarayanan''s concept, a ''Personal Thoughteracy Assistant (PTA)," aportable, and perhaps even wearable, device will be able to translate, read, write, and perform other various technological functions to help illiterate people.

With features such as searching external digital libraries, converting spokenwords into written text, and scanning text from books or written documents, thePTA will open up a new world for those struggling with illiteracy.
