Outside Echo

Roger TuckerOutside Echo is a not-for-profit company founded in 2003 by entrepreneur technologist Dr Roger Tucker. Its purpose is to instantiate innovative & socially important ideas and develop them to the point where they can become self-sustaining. A particular focus has been around the themes of IT for development (IT4D) and disability, recognising that textual information access does not work well for a significant percentage of the world's population - either because of disability, illiteracy, or language.

You can read a summary of Outside Echo's work so far on our Key Projects page, where we briefly describe the Local Language Speech Technology Initiative and the software tool Audio Notetaker.
