Based in northern Israel, Voxdox is a text-to-speech app developed to help students with dyslexia, alexia or other learning disabilities. Released in March 2013, Voxdox already boasts 200,000 downloads, with most of its users based in the US, Germany, and Brazil.

"Compared to other similar apps in the market, Voxdox is equipped with a text-to-speech app and an electronic reader. This means that the user does not have to use two apps simultaneously one for speech and one for reading," Ben Baror, the CEO of Root Applications, the startup behind Voxdox.

In addition to running pilot programs with a number of educational institutions around the world, Voxdox is working to build a vast online library.

"We want the world of literature to open up those with learning difficulties and most of all, we want it to be accessible also to the poorest populations in the world. Currently, the developing world this lagging behind the West in almost everything, especially in readiness to combat learning disabilities, but we believe that TTS can bridge this gap," Baror concluded

Funding: Voxdox is privately funded, but the company is in talks with investors in Tel Aviv for additional funds to finance and launch the online library during 2015.
