Accented English Training App for Amazon Alexa, Google Home, etc.

  • 24

My idea is for an app that trains virtual assistants like Amazon Alexa and Google home to understand accented English better. The program will use thousands of hours of audio from different accents and machine learning to help these virtual assistants better interpret English with accents. What do you think? Would this be helpful for you or anyone you know?


  1. Great idea. I see a lot of applications in the healthtech field, particularly for at-home or elderly care. The value is that it opens up communication and could have preventive care outcomes for vulnerable populations, especially the aging population. I could see you finding a lot of success with a product like this in partnership with healthcare insurers, home health, and medical translation companies. Best of luck, and feel free to reach out if I can help discuss more.

  2. Kudos to you for your focus on accessibility and equity in design. I would encourage you to utilize existing voice libraries to train your AI and to integrate with open source speech recognition systems. If you need some recommendations, feel free to reach out.
