Translate text to symbols
Many symbol-based languages have been developed to simplify reading for people with cognitive, language, and learning disabilities or literacy problems. Some users find that learning to read and write in a symbol-based language is easier than learning to read and write traditional text, and symbol-based writing styles can be used internationally, even those who do not speak the same spoken language. A good system is needed to translate traditional written language into the symbol-based equivalent.
