Hablando con Julis (HCJ) is a technology solution for people with speaking, reading and writing difficulties. Recognized by MIT Technology Review as the Social Innovation of the Year, it has already reached more than 5,000 users in Latin America and shown great results. The idea was born as a result of a personal need: Julis is a 24 year old young woman who was born with a disability due to which she is unable to speak, so her family led the development of a technology that would allow her to communicate. This is how Hablando con Julis came to be. The HCJ solution allows anyone to communicate, improve their pronunciation, and learn to read and write in a short period of time. It works for people aged 3 to 85 with speech difficulties, Down syndrome, autism, cerebral palsy, in cases of illiteracy, and for people who have lost their ability to speak due to an illness.
