Apple Music has brought a new feature, Saylists, for those who have speech-sound disorders. It is intended to improve their experience.
Saylists, on Apple Music, will help young listeners who have difficulty hearing certain songs with challenging sounds.
So far, over 173 tracks have been featured on the list at the time of writing.
Using Apple Music with Saylists
As per the BBC report, Apple Music has introduced Saylists to help young listeners with speech-sound disorders (SSD).
The new tool comes from Warner Music and uses algorithms “to find song lyrics that repeat challenging sounds.”
Some of the popular songs added to the list include Dua Lipa’s Don’t Start Now and Fatboy Slim’s Right Now. Lizzo’s Good As Hell and Right Here are also there.
The initiative has been unveiled, keeping in mind that at least one in twelve children in the UK has some speech-sound disorder.
The report from BBC mentions that the tool analyses the lyrics of the entire Apple Music library. It then creates a new playlist of songs that use the most challenging sounds most often.
Furthermore, a speech and language therapist praised this new initiative.
“Saylists provide a fun new way to practice the sounds I teach children, without feeling pressured or getting bored.”
Upcoming products and announcements
Meanwhile, apart from unveiling new features to its services, the iPhone maker is also busy with its 2021 plans.
It will try to replicate the success of last year in this calendar as well.
When it comes to the most-awaited announcements, then next month is expected to reveal the company’s first event. Previous leaks claimed it to arrive in March, but it didn’t happen.
Furthermore, there is WWDC in June. Its main highlight is iOS 15, the upcoming successor to the iOS 14 operating system.
Apple Watch will see an upgrade as well, with improved health-related options.
Before the end of 2021, tech enthusiasts will also witness iPhone 13. Early leaks have claimed it to launch with surprising changes—for example, a reduced notch, fast 120Hz refresh rate, and the addition of Touch ID.
Coming back to Apple Music, then recent reports have suggested that Apple is planning to bring a new “City Charts” feature to its service. It will show the listeners the top 100 songs from cities across the globe.
