Google has opened its first research and development facility in the UK to create assistive technology for those with disabilities. It is the first website for the business with a global accessibility focus. People in the UK who have difficulties communicating with others due to medical issues can get help with a Google app called Project Relate. The program makes it easier for those who have problems understanding speech patterns to recognize speech patterns. A number of Google technical teams are in charge of “supercharging” accessible technologies to improve their use. These groups are working on artificial intelligence-related projects and have a large number of research teams. For example, a majority of people now benefit from subtitling technology, which was primarily developed to assist deaf or hard-of-hearing television viewers. Deaf person Rachael Bleakley states that using subtitles helped her get past the lipreading difficulties she faced as a child.
