Today we attended the AI Ireland Awards and won for our category — Best Use of AI in a Sector — for the use of our voice technology in PreK-12 education.

One of the many applications of voice technology for kids is in the classroom, to support them on their reading journey, starting with phonics and all the way to fluency.

Check out our Educate page for examples of how our technology is used for automated assessments and to help kids practice reading out loud.

We also recently announced our selection as the early literacy screener tool, as part of the Reach Every Reader project being rolled out across the US.

The team at SoapBox Labs are delighted with this AI Ireland award, the recognition it brings, and the heavyweight trophy, which will adorn our office!

Thanks to the AI Awards Ireland, and to Microsoft Ireland for sponsoring the event and our award.

Earlier this year we partnered with Cathriona Hallahan and Microsoft on a kids’ voice technology for literacy project. Celebrating this award together is the perfect way to bring this great year (almost!) to a close.
