About Reading Racer Technology Foundation
In 2012, technology entrepreneur Umang Gupta, in collaboration with Carnegie Mellon University, developed a groundbreaking children’s speech recognition based game, capable of working on mobile devices without the need of the internet. This game became Reading Racer. Reading Racer makes reading aloud fun and easy for kids, and helps children learn to read fluently. Since then we have further improved our technology to better understand children's speech, and missing speech sounds inherent in the voices of young children, something very few other products do.
In 2019, Gupta was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Knowing that he would not be able to develop Reading Racer to its fullest potential, he decided to create a platform for sharing his speech recognition software with interested users across the world. To achieve this goal, he founded the Reading Racer Technology Foundation (RRTF) in early 2022. The mission of RRTF is to promote and share Reading Racer’s speech engine and provide technical support to those building educational products.
