Designed to enhance learning and communication of autistic children, ‘Bol’ can be configured by themselves based on their needsBANGALORE, INDIA: SAP Labs India on Monday said it has launched ‘Bol’, an iPad application built to assist individuals affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) as a part of its hAPPfy project, which aims at providing free applications to improve the daily lives of people.
The application is customisable to suit the needs of autistic children in India. The aim is to make an application that parents and educators of the children can configure themselves based on their needs.
Bol integrates three key elements; auditory (record a voice over description), visual (take a picture), and instant feedback, allowing children under ASD not just associate objects with sounds, but also gain a comprehensive understanding of the environment around them. The application will be made available free of cost
“We have developed Bol with the specific intent of helping children with Autism Spectrum Disorder to find easier means to learn and comprehend simple, everyday objects and processes,” said Rachit Mathur, a volunteer from SAP Labs India.
