The user should say loud and clear voice that he wants to advertise on social networking.

 A new application for mobile devices, developed by the institute ITEAM of Polytechnic University of Valencia (UPV), allow "blind" more involved in social networks like Twitter, thanks to voice recognition for posting.

 UPV explained that the application was worked for the Android platform and that will also benefit disabled drivers, who may communicate by voice with other devices in their home through Bluetooth or Wi-fi.

 "The prototype uses a system of recognition and voice synthesis to the control and management of applications to capture and deliver information in audio format and serve as an interface between the user and mobile", said Juan Carlos Guerri, one of the researchers of ITEAM institute.

 He indicated that the user needs clear and audible voice the message that he wants to be published on Twitter; it uses the microphone to the mobile device.

 "This recognition activates the motor to tweet transcribed to text and then synthesize it and play it. Once the user to check the content and it fits what you want to communicate you can publish it", he added.

 Previously, the same company has developed a warning system for the hearing disabled, prototype aimed to improve their quality of life.
