Hello from SpeechBubble

So I guess this is a hello post....the one where we say hi, and tell you who we are and what we do.

SpeechBubble are a closely knit team from (nearly always!) rainy Belfast, Northern Ireland, who came up with the idea of improving global communications....OK....so we know that sounds a bit grand, but let me explain.

Once upon a time in a desert far, far away (Dubai actually), some of our guys met with some of the world’s biggest construction companies, who have huge teams of workers on site to manage and train, with up to 19 languages and dialects present. So, our contacts asked....no, actually PLEADED for a solution to help them communicate worker health and safety to the workers.

And so....some brainstorming and a lot of coffee later, the bare bones of SpeechBubble were formed. The SpeechBubble platform is a multilingual user interface which allows a user to flick between languages dynamically whilst making a presentation, making sure the message is fully understood by everyone is his or her native language.

Since then the system has been used for training, in healthcare, on touch screens, and can publish content in nearly 20 languages. We've taken the system down lots of roads including its most recent foray into the mobile world, ....and that's what this blog is about.

If you want to see more about our journey to here.
