After intensive research and development over three years, Indus OS offers users myriad options of patented and innovative features to enable the use of a smartphone beyond just its calling, texting features.The company also has partnerships with the Government of India on multiple projects. One of these is the Text-to-Speech feature for eight languages, which has been developed and launched as part of Indus OS 2.0.
Rakesh Deshmukh, CEO and Co-founder, Indus OS said, “Starting out, we realized that a significant gap exists in the market with regard to technology - specifically for the regional language speakers. Indus OS is an effort to build a platform that aids ease in technology adoption. For this, our team has developed multiple patented, simplistic features that tackle challenge areas like typing in regional languages, understanding English-based content, and accessing the world of applications amongst others.
Our aim is that Indus OS powered smartphones will let users be as comfortable with a smartphone as an English-language speaker. We understand the pain points of the Indian smartphone users and continually innovate to cater to their needs.”
