Teenager from India invents device that can convert breath to speech

A high school student from India has invented a device that can convert a person’s breath into speech, to give millions of people around the world suffering from speech impediment a ‘voice’ for the first time.

Sixteen-year-old Arsh Shah Dilbagi has developed a new technology called ‘TALK’, which is a cheap and portable device to help people who are physically incapable of speaking express themselves. Right now, 1.4 percent of the world’s population has very limited or no speech, due to conditions such as Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), locked-in syndrome (LIS), Encephalopathy (SEM), Parkinson’s disease, and paralysis.

His name is Arsh Shah Dilbagi and he’s 16 years old. Gettin tired of sensationalized “mystery baby from a country where people are brown does a science thing!” articles. Use peoples names, don’t act so surprised when people of color are geniuses.

'Booker T. Washington delivered his controversial “Atlanta Compromise” address at the Cotton States Exposition in Atlanta, GA, on this date September 18, 1895. Washington told Blacks to accept racism but spend their time working hard and improving themselves.'

White people were in the audience CRYING they were so happy. He basically compromised our freedom. 

If you’ve never read his speech or heard it, you need to. Considering where we are today, it’s very interesting. There is no wonder why whites made him a Black leader.
