Apple Music 'saylists' to help with speech issues
"Saylists" are being launched on Apple Music to help young people with speech-sound disorders. The project, from Warner Music, uses algorithms to find song lyrics that repeat challenging sounds. In a recent documentary, BBC producer Felicity Baker talked about living with the condition and spoke to some high-profile people with a stammer, including a rapper who found music helped. Speech-and-language therapist Anna Biavati-Smith, who worked with Warner Music and Rothco on the project, said: "Saylists provide a fun new way to practise the sounds I teach children, without feeling pressured or getting bored." Warner Music chief executive Tony Harlow said: "Helping people express themselves is at the heart of what we do - and we hope that by creating a therapeutic tool that's as engaging and accessible as saylists, we can help anyone whose struggling with their speech."
