TIM Ventures invests EUR 410,000 in app for deaf users

Thursday 18 December 2014 | 14:48 CET | News
TIM Ventures, Telecom Italia's new seed investment company, has joined forces with Sistema Investimenti and Embed Capital to invest a total of EUR 410,000 in the startup Pedius srl, creator of an innovative app that allows deaf people to make regular phone calls using voice recognition and synthesis technologies. The app was awarded a development grant in 2013 under Telecom Italia's Working Capital accelerator programme and has been adopted at the company's call centres, enabling the voice of the operator to be automatically transformed into written text for the deaf or partially deaf user.
