iSinkwe app, developed by CSIR in South Africa, can help children with their reading and listening skills in all 11 official SA languages

The app, called iSinkwe – the isiZulu word for a bushbaby – adds and synchronises human-narrated or computer-generated audio to text. It aims to make textbooks, class notes and other documents more accessible to learners by making reading and learning more interactive.

iSinkwe functions by adding audio, which can be recorded manually by someone or generated by a computer using a standard Electronic Publication Version Three (EPUB3) document, to text documents.

There is already an Android app, with an iOS app and a Windows store app still to follow.
