SoapBox Labs Receives Funding to Develop Voice Technology for Spanish-Speaking Children

SoapBox Labs, the voice AI company for kids, has received funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to develop a Spanish language voice engine to support the needs of millions of young literacy and language-learning students across the United States.

"Investing in the power of our voice engine technology to support the next generation of dual-language learners is a critical step towards addressing literacy gaps in the U.S. and around the world," said Martyn Farrows, CEO of SoapBox Labs, in a statement. "With this funding from the Gates Foundation, we look forward to working with our education partners to power more inclusive voice-enabled tools and systems to support children of every age, accent, and background on their learning journeys."
