Speech Accessibility Project

The purpose of this project is to develop and maintain a shared, secure repository of de-identified speech data, built from open-source software, to support the creation of technologies that improve the quality of life for people with disabilities such as Parkinson’s disease, ALS, cerebral palsy, and Down syndrome. Our team, Consortium Nova Habilitas (“NOVA H”), will serve as a communication channel among individuals with disabilities, organizations that advocate and support them, and researchers or developers interested in serving those needs. The project has launched with industry support from Amazon, Apple, Google, Meta, and Microsoft.
