Children need to blow a series of mouthpieces where each one represents specific letters and sounds. The sensor built into the iPhone’s microphone will record the airflow patterns. An animation appears on screen with audio and visual feedback that reinforces the correct pronunciation and use of each sound.

Using iTok, the designer proposes a simple language learning tools to eliminate the need of paper records through digital archiving. The other benefits would be the increasing face-time between speech therapists, children with language learning disorders and their parents through smartphone technology, using this platform, it’s possible for parents and therapists to digitally exchange data prior to sessions.
