Tania: Hi, I am Tania.
This is my voice.
I use Morse code by putting dots and dashes
with switches mounted near my head.
As a very young child,
I used a communication word board.
I used a head stick to point to the words.
It was very attractive to say the least.
Once Morse code was incorporated into my life,
it was a feeling of pure liberation and freedom.
boy: See you later.
Love you.
Tania: I think that is why I like skydiving so much.
It is the same kind of feeling.
Through skydiving, I met Ken, the love of my life
and partner in crime.
Ken: It's always been very, very difficult
just to find Morse code devices,
to try Morse code.
Tania: This is why I had to create my own.
With the help from Ken, I have a voice
and more independence in my daily life.
But most people don't have Ken.
It is our hope that we can collaborate
with the Gboard team to help people who want to tap into
the freedom of using Morse code.
woman: Gboard is the Google keyboard.
What we have discovered working on Gboard is that
there are entire pockets of population in the world,
and when I say "pockets," it's, like,
tens of millions of people
who have never had access to a keyboard that works
in their own language.
With Tania, we've built support in Gboard for Morse code,
so it's an input modality that allows you to type
in Morse code and gets texts out
with predictions, suggestions.
I think it's a beautiful example of where machine learning
Can really assist someone in a way that a normal keyboard
without artificial intelligence wouldn't be able to.
Tania: I am very excited to continue on this journey.
Many, many people will benefit from this,
and that thrills me to no end.
