Teenager from India invents device that can convert breath to speech

A high school student from India has invented a device that can convert a person’s breath into speech, to give millions of people around the world suffering from speech impediment a ‘voice’ for the first time.

Sixteen-year-old Arsh Shah Dilbagi has developed a new technology called ‘TALK’, which is a cheap and portable device to help people who are physically incapable of speaking express themselves. Right now, 1.4 percent of the world’s population has very limited or no speech, due to conditions such as Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), locked-in syndrome (LIS), Encephalopathy (SEM), Parkinson’s disease, and paralysis.


His name is Arsh Shah Dilbagi and he’s 16 years old. Gettin tired of sensationalized “mystery baby from a country where people are brown does a science thing!” articles. Use peoples names, don’t act so surprised when people of color are geniuses.

laila and her family are descendants of the indigenous grooup who lived by the great lake

jelena’s family has been in the country they live in for a couple generations, but emigrated from the other side of the mountain range

themes that stick around

corrupt and failing power structures (years ago the holy city was ruled by a king, and his domain stretched all over - from the mountains in the east and north to the desert border with the empire in the south - but he was cast down and committed suicide for fear of his people’s wrath. he and his had failed them for many generations. now the city revolves around the university which has sprung up from the old palace, but it is doomed as well by the complacency of the university board.)

tragic character tropes reclaiming their lives (a snow white character who cannot be killed, for she has already died. the psychotic girl who will not die at the end of the story, nor be cured through true love. the trans woman who will be adored instead of despised.)

everyday life (laila has two jobs and wants to sing for a career, but we all know she won’t succeed. did you hear? jelena and dominick’s mother is a working girl - poor things - that whole family just can’t catch a break. Juarez - you know, the lesbian cop? - is leaving the force. that wife of hers has been filling her with bitterness toward the police.)

and magic! (or weird science)

Do not picture your OTP having a kid and losing said kid in a ball pit.
