How Aweza Talks The Talk
Language barriers can stunt learning in education. With our plugin, in partnership with FastMaths Online, Aweza is unlocking learning potential for non-first language english speaking learners.
In the healthcare sector, medical practitioners and patients often do not speak the same language as each other. This can often result in enneficient patient mangement. Using our multi-lingual communication framework for mobile, AwezaMed seeks to address this problem.
