Addressing Childhood Literacy Through 1:1 AI Reading Coach and Best Child Speech Recognition Technology on the Market
The U.S. has a big problem with child literacy. The NAEP – Nation’s Report Card – shows that 69% of 4th graders cannot read proficiently. Until now, the edtech industry has not had the technical tools to provide 1:1 teaching, but AI has changed everything. Ello is going to solve Bloom’s Two Sigma problem and democratize education through its AI-based reading tools and dramatically scale 1:1 teaching.
With a mission to empower every child to embark on a reading journey, regardless of their resources or environment, Ello excels at precisely aligning books with a child’s reading proficiency and interests, thus fostering heightened engagement throughout the reading experience.
Ello’s first product is the world’s most advanced reading coach, powered by proprietary speech recognition and AI. It listens, understands, and engages with children to teach them critical reading skills. With proprietary speech recognition that can understand a child’s speech at a phoneme level, Ello can understand a child in a way technology has been unable to before. Ello’s proprietary speech recognition outperforms Whisper, known to be the best child speech recognition technology on the market. The current model is patent-pending and is specifically designed to work on the task of children reading (versus conversational speech).
Ello is solving one of education’s largest issues – scaling 1:1 instruction to maximize the learning potential of all children, regardless of resources. Its first product is the world’s most advanced reading coach, powered by proprietary speech recognition and generative AI.
