Braw Media are developing apps to make it easier to learn languages.
Gaelic, Irish or Welsh – our goal is to help many more people build the confidence to pronounce new languages. As you repeat a phrase the mobile app gives you immediate feedback on your pronunciation, so that step by step you can improve your pronunciation and achieve your fluency goals.
Digital Innovation – when it comes to learning tools and digital innovation, minority languages often miss out – further increasing the gap between minority and mainstream languages. Our goal is to help address this issue.
Research & Development – working with universities, our aim is to develop exciting new language technologies to help people learn Gaelic, Welsh and Irish. Automated speech recognition has made excellent progress – we would like to see how it can help people learn new languages.
Gaelic Twitter Map
If you tweet in Gaelic or with the hashtag #Gaelic or #Gàidhlig, check out our Gaelic Twitter Map. Every day Gaelic tweets from around the World are automatically mapped.
