As you spend the majority of your time reading on your laptops, tablets or smartphones, how many new or difficult words do you skip over in a day? In a year? Probably more than you can count as there are over 200,000 words in the English language!

Instead, why not use this time as a chance to boost your English vocabulary for work, for study or just for personal improvement - while helping an underprivileged student learn to read and write?

We’ve developed VokaBee to work in unison with the content you read every day to help you learn new words in a fun and interactive way.

It’s easy to use. Simply install the VokaBee plug-in on your Google Chrome browser. Then, select any word from the content you naturally enjoy reading online.

Unlike any other web extensions, VokaBee will provide you with an instant definition, pronunciation, images, synonyms and a translation in your mother tongue if needed.

The VokaBee A.I. uses every word you highlight while reading online to generate bite-size games and quizzes on your App tailored just for you to help you memorize new words faster.

All of this can be done anytime, anywhere, and on any of your devices. And because VokaBee works with the material you choose to read, it evolves naturally with you over time.

 Well, we have the proof.

We ran multiple pilot tests with these language schools and the results show an increase in vocabulary uptake by 22%.

Take a look at some feedback from our pilot partners:

For every USD 30 | € 27 | SGD 42 we receive in pledges with a subscription, we will give away 1 charity account to a GENUS child.

GENUS' means “child” in Latin and we would like to encourage you to be part of the “i” that transforms GENUS to GENIUS. At VokaBee and GENUS, we believe every child is a GENIUS and no child should be left behind because of their circumstances!

👧👦 DONATION 💓 ➨ USD 10 | € 9 | SGD 14 

For every USD 10 | € 9 | SGD 14 we receive in pledges without a subscription, we will give away 1 charity account to a GENUS child. GENUS is a social initiative for children to enjoy learning English in the most effective and efficient way. GENUS has been through NGOs, schools and churches in 7 countries and has already identified 323 children in need to be the beneficiaries of VokaBee charity accounts

And we are scaling our social impact with the Global Shapers Community in Singapore, an initiative of the World Economic Forum.

1. Import content and create your personal cloud library.
2. Use your smart reader and select words to feed your profile.
3. Memorize and use new words with your personalized learning activities.

🌍 WEB PLUG-IN 🔌
USD 5,000 | € 4,500 | SGD 7,000  

At this milestone, we can connect your Beta App with a web plug-in so you can learn as you browse the web on Google Chrome reading the content you enjoy.  

🎮 GAMIFICATION 🏆
USD 100,000 | € 90,000 | SGD 140,000  

At this point, we can enhance our tracking tools and further gamify your learning experience with scoring, leaderboards and even more visuals.  

✍ CONTENT LIBRARY 📚
USD 200,000 | € 180,000 | SGD 280,000  

If we can hit this goal, we will be able to provide vocabulary quizzes using content from popular movies & TV series. Also, we can develop a shared set of study tools, including grammar, comprehension and pronunciation activities.  

📱 MOBILE APP 🍎
USD 400,000 | € 360,000 | SGD 560,000  

At this level, you will be able to install our iOS or Android App and take advantage of VokaBee without going through a web browser on your phone!

With your support, we will take our project to the next level in 2019 so we can create a web plug-in, enhance our web app and release a mobile app which will allow VokaBee to be used on any device and to truly become a global solution everyone can enjoy anytime, anywhere.

All of our backers will receive an email newsletter with regular project updates. If you have any questions or would just like to check out what we’re up to, please drop by our Facebook Page.

Risks and challenges

We have an established company in Singapore, the leading tech hub for innovation. We have a strong customer base here with our pilot partnerships. We also built the right support structure for handling this project during our acceleration program with Muru-D.

The base version of our app already functions smoothly as we have developed the core technology over the past 2 years. We do not foresee any major challenges for our tech team to deliver the web plug-in, and we have prepared detailed scenarios and mockups for the future evolutions of the web app.

Creating a quality app compatible on iOS will require additional mobile expertise and we have partnered up with an agency in Singapore that is already prepared to execute this UX/UI work.

We need to hire and train more staff to accelerate the delivery of new features and enhance users’ learning experience with more:
1. types of exercises generated by our AI
2. visuals in our interactive reader and quizzes
3. gamification features and study sets.

We don’t have any legal concerns about our use of image and dictionary information as we’re using third party APIs to obtain this data.

The only challenge we foresee is that it is difficult to assess exactly how much will be needed to develop some of our stretch goals, such as the study sets. This may delay the development of the final version of our app. However, we will compensate backers with a longer beta test access if this is the case.
