MBBP client OtoSense, a Cambridge-based start-up, has recently been recognized for its sound recognition technology. The company has developed an app that enables hearing impaired end users to select various traditional sounds such as bells, alarms, timers, etc. that occur within an everyday environment and then identify such sounds as they occur and alert the end user via non-acoustic means such as flashes, vibrations or text messages. Selected out of more than 800 entries and judged by a panel of international experts, the start-up won the “Best Mobile App of the Year” Global Mobile Award, in the category of Accessibility & Inclusion, at the 20th annual GSMA Global Mobile Awards.
Well done, OtoSense!
