Boca Raton, FL -- (ReleaseWire) -- 05/14/2015 -- Austin Lubetkin from Boca Raton, FL has launched a Kickstarter Campaign to source funding for an app he is developing that will teach users how to read Hebrew. As part of the project he is also coding the ability for iOS to say a Hebrew word aloud. He aims to raise at least $1,000 by Mon, Jun 8 2015 for the costs associated with the completion of the app.
Austin, a computer science student has been working on the development of the Hebrew School app for about a year now and he is confident and determined to carry this project through to completion but he requires some help from Hebrew experts and additional app developers. Austin said: "One of the main goals of this project is to build a library that can allow a system like iOS which doesn't have the ability to speak Hebrew do so. I'm a couple versions in and need your help to keep my project going. Programming takes a lot of time and hard work to make an app properly and I need to raise funds to pay programmers like myself as well as a Hebrew school teacher who will be checking my work."
Understanding that learning Hebrew can be a difficult process for most English speakers due to the many differences the languages have, Hebrew School for Everyone app will feature a selection of commonly used prayers that include an interactive system that will walk a user through reading each Hebrew word as well as features like a calendar to keep track of a user's progress, and more...
Austin's current reach goals include the development of an interactive system that teaches users how to write each word, a guide to the Hebrew alphabet and the vowels used and meaning of each Hebrew word in English. The app is being made for all ages and will offer an easy to use interface that even children can use to learn Hebrew.
People who contribute to the project will receive various perks according to the amount pledged. Anyone who contributes $100 USD or more will receive a silver plated charm featuring an original Judaica design and the first 150 people to pledge atleast $5 USD will have the option to be beta testers.
