Spoken Language/Tajweed Interactive Self Learning Assistant

The goal of this innovative technology is to afford an effective assistant in the self learning of spoken languageg .Hafss© which has proved effective in helping people learn Tajweed of the holy Qur’an is also helpful in learning spoken Arabic and other languages as well.In fact, RDI is negotiating with European partners about adapting it to help in learning spoken European language.

After its first apparition in GITEX 2004, Hafss© proved itself in a large project of building Qur’an web encyclopedia for the Kuwaiti ministry of endowments. The challenging feature about Hafss© is that it can detect and fully diagnose the faults – if any – in the learner’s utterance of given examples. This closes the feedback loop without which the learning process can never be completed.

After GITEX© 2006 and Cairo Int'l Book Fair 2007, an end-user version of Hafss© is released for the Arabic market esp. in the Gulf and Egypt with other ones following soon. For that version with all its rich material and integrated interactive auxiliary tools, RDI has been awarded the prize of e-Content Award first prize in the e-Learning track from the Egyptian IT Industry Development Agency "ITIDA" for the year 2006.

Moreover, on Sept. 15th, 2007, RDI's Hafss© technology for the interactive learning of spoken language applied on the Tajweed of the hloy Qur'an has been declared first in the 2007 World Summit Award contest for best e-content/e-Learning track where about 850 other candidates from 160 countries had participated.
