Eight interns from Microsoft’s Garage Intern Team have developed an Android app – Read My World – for people willing to learn the English language.

The app requires and allows users to take a photo to identify an object from a library of over 1,500 vocabulary words, the company wrote in a blog-post on Thursday.

Using syllabification and text-to-speech features, the user can hear and see the spelling of the object as a vocabulary word, then add it to a personal dictionary for practice later.
