Hello my name is Mkwawa and I am a simp of human progress who has dedicated his life to try and introduce a new societal model.
This new societal model includes many new infrastructures that have not yet been created and hence implementing the new societal model will cost a lot of money since it requires we first build the infrastructure.
I have already finished creating the theoretical new societal model and I am currently working on getting the funding to build it.
The plan is to get the money through creating an app that is one of the key infrastructures of the new societal model I have created.
The app idea involves building software that allows students to practice what they learn using voice commands instead of using typing or writing.
The way I imagined it would work, would be someone wearing a device that allows a unidirectional microphone to be fixated in front of their mouth.
The microphone then records voice commands of the person and the software is able to process the commands and show them as output on the display of a computer, tablet or Smartphone.
This idea is revolutionary as it will simplify learning and allow everyone to be able to easily understand and practice what they learn.
Let us now look at the advantages of people using voice commands to do questions about what they learned instead of writing or typing:
Speed of doing questions
Voice commands exponentially increase the speed of doing questions since it’s a form of dictation which is the fastest way to input data.
Studies have found that typing is 3 times faster than writing and dictation is 7 times faster than typing which means that voice commands will allow a student to input the same data in 3 minutes which would have taken them 63 minutes to write.
This significantly allows students to practice what they learn, especially for stem subjects, allowing most students to easily understand and pass their exams.
But speed of doing questions isn’t the only factor that determines what input method people use as typing is already faster than writing but isn’t used in most areas for learning.
Imagine doing math through voice commands rather than writing. How many questions will you be able to do in one sitting? You were not bad in math; the input method was just too slow for you to do enough practice to master it.
Voice commands allow people to practice and do questions of what they study in more environments compared to writing or typing.
Typing efficiently requires a laptop as using a tablet is difficult since the keyboard takes half of the screen.
To efficiently type or study using a laptop, a person requires a desk, chair and a power supply.
Writing is more versatile than typing as it doesn’t require a power supply but you still have to have a desk and chair to efficiently write.
Voice commands are used in tablets or smart phones and the input device (A unidirectional microphone) worn by an individual.
Hence voice commands don’t require a chair or desk making it the most environmentally versatile mode to input data.
Imagine being in a bed and holding a tablet while answering an exam through dictating in a unidirectional microphone you have worn.
You could literally study anywhere. Schools can no longer need desks and chairs. We could re-imagine what schools will look like.
This is especially important for third world countries as many children here fail to pass exams because of the environment they have to study in.
Price of device
Using Voice commands as an input method reduces the cost of products that a person has to buy in order to efficiently study.
Books are the cheapest option when it comes to a way to practice learning or note down notes while laptops are the most expensive option.
Using voice commands will be cheaper than typing in laptops since it will use a tablet or Smartphone and a simple input device (unidirectional microphone) which both cost less than a laptop with the same specs.
The tablet or Smartphone might be more expensive than one book but on the long run, it will be cheaper than the notebooks, textbooks, bags, pen, chair, tables etc. that a person will have to buy in the lifetime of studying.
Scope of data that can be easily inputted
Using voice commands allows people to have the widest scope of data that they can easily input.
Writing has the edge on typing due to the scope of data that you can easily input.
This is true for subjects that involve mathematics as it’s much harder to do mathematics through typing.
Unlike typing, voice commands allow you to input a wider scope of data as anything that can be written can also be spoken, and hence voice commands can input as wide a scope of data as writing.
You can argue that you can’t draw through voice commands like how you can draw using a paper but voice commands will make using drawing software such as CAD, Blender much easier.
Imagine doing math on a Smartphone through voice commands. Imagine using drawing software such as CAD or blender through voice commands instead of cramming shortcuts and doing a whole lot of mouse work.
Exhaustion from doing questions
Voice commands is the least exhausting form of inputting data compared to writing and typing.
The most practiced form of inputting data is talking since we talk with our friends, family etc.
This means that voice commands is the least exhausting form of inputting data since it doesn’t strain your hand and back like writing or strain your back and neck like typing.
Since voice commands will also be faster, it will allow people to finish their work earlier reducing the exhaustion they get from learning.
Imagine not having to break your back just to write or type questions or answers.
Voice commands will exponentially increase the endurance of people to learn and practice.
Hence people using voice commands to do questions about the subjects they learn will exponentially increase the quality of their understanding of the subject.
The voice command device idea is excellent but the plan is to first make a simpler app that uses typing which is also faster than writing.
The goal of making an app that uses typing to do math questions is to empirically prove that being able to do questions faster reduces the amount of time a student has to spend to grasp and understand a concept.
So that’s the stage I am at and I am currently trying to get enough money to build and test out the app.
I am sharing this idea because I would like for it to be implemented even if something happens to me as I think it will be as impactful as the printing press or the internet.
Practice makes perfect and through the app, people will be able to practice faster allowing them to spend less time learning a new profession or skill.
So I hope through this app I will be able to generate enough revenue to start creating the infrastructure of the new societal model.
The plan is to create the typing app by 2024, so let’s hope things go well.
