9th Class Karachi Kid Made An App That Helps Speech Restrained People To Communicate

Ahmad Jamal Khan, a gifted 9th grade student from Karachi, has developed an app for the speech impaired to enable them to communicate with others through apps by just tapping a few buttons. It has refused to make any profit from it as it is a free and ad-free app. The name of the app is “Kya Baat App” and it is available on the Android Play Store and can be downloaded on iPhones via APK.

Ahmed introduced the app as follows:

“What Talk is designed specifically for people who are unable to communicate verbally due to certain conditions such as paralysis or tracheostomy. With the tap of a button, users of this app can communicate with others, esp. They will be able to communicate with their caregivers.

The app uses the recorded voices of a man and a woman who can talk to other people from different real-life scenarios and help them explain their current situation to others. For example, if they are in pain or hungry, they can tap buttons and the mobile speaker will speak. The entire app is in Urdu and is easy to use, no login or other information required, and the app is ready to use as soon as you download it.


A Rehabilitation Medicine Physician, Farooq Rathore commended the app as:

“I am very pleased that someone has taken this initiative to help people with speech disorders who were unable to use the fancy apps in English ( a foreign language). This app is suited to millions of people who were unable to speak because of different reasons and now can have a tool that would help them express themselves. This is an excellent initiative which deserves five stars for the interface, options, and speech quality.”
