Voiceitt, a speech recognition technology provider, has partnered with Virtualahan, an organization that recruits and trains individuals with disabilities for employment, to give people with disabilities a voice and facilitate opportunities for employment.

Voiceitt's app for people with speech disabilities facilitates both in-person and remote voice-based communication and interaction with third-party apps.

According to the United Nations, approximately 80 percent of people with disabilities are unemployed worldwide. Voiceitt and Virtualahan are committed to changing these statistics by creating inclusive workplaces where individuals with disabilities can contribute their unique talents and skills.

"Our tech expands employment opportunities and can improve workplace productivity," said Alyson Pace, CEO of Voiceitt, in a statement. "We are proud to acknowledge the contributions of our invaluable team members with disabilities. With Virtualahan's expertise in training, coaching, and employment support, we aim to break down barriers and create opportunities for people with disabilities to thrive in the workplace.

"In parallel, we are engaging with major employers across the tech industry, government, education, and healthcare, to deploy our technology in order to leverage tremendous talent in the disability community that is often otherwise untapped," Pace said. "What a ramp was to yesterday's office building, Voiceitt is to today's remote workplace: if a person cannot participate in or be understood in a video conference or phone call, then they may struggle to fulfill their potential at work."

"At Virtualahan, we provide people with disabilities and other disadvantaged groups with skills for online employment. By partnering with Voiceitt, we provide excluded communities with economic opportunities and life skills to reach their professional potential and present them with access to cutting-edge technology, like Voiceitt, that not only improves communication but also opens doors to employment opportunities that were previously inaccessible," said Virtualahan's founder, Ryan Gersava, in a statement

"It's an honor to support the leadership of Voiceitt and Virtualahan through The Global Good Fund Fellowship and to follow-on invest in Voiceitt through the Global Impact Fund. Many doors will open for people with disabilities that will positively impact individuals, businesses, and the world thanks to collaboration between leaders of Voiceitt and Virtualahan," said Carrie Rich, CEO of The Global Good Fund and managing partner of Global Impact Fund, in a statement.
