Apple’s next great invention is not a phone, a tablet or a computer: it is a therapeutic program designed for people who have speech problems and disorders.
It will be called Saylists and it helps people with speech disorders by repeating songs with the sounds that are most difficult for them to pronounce.

From Warner Music they hope that “by creating a therapeutic tool that is as attractive and accessible as word lists,” they can help anyone who has difficulties with their speech, “as CEO Tony Harlow has expressed.
