Software Goes On Lecture Tour
By Jo Deeks on Thursday, 12th February 2004.
A Software company is having its work featured in the prestigious series of Faraday lectures currently touring the country.
Sarand Business Software Solutions of Hollands Business Centre in Haverhill, will have one of its on-going projects featured in the lectures, which are organised the The Institution of Electrical Engineers.
The series of lectures "present cutting edge technology in exciting and interactive format" to the public, and in particular young people.
This years topic is "Sound FX - Making Music with Technology" and Sarand Software is being used to present a visual interpretation of sounds, particularly when singing.
The three-month tour finishes in March and is particularly aimed at 14 - 16 year olds.
Sarand is approaching its 10th anniversary. Its WinSingad software presents a graphical interpretation of the spoken and sung word and is being trialled as an aid for professional singing teachers. It could also have appplications in helping children learn how to speak.
Andy and Sarah Howard run the company and although their main focus is designing databases and software for businesses, they also have a number of academics among their clients.
"We are obviously proud to be associated with this event," Mr Howard said.
"Ww have beenworking on this particular project for two and a half years with research students, turning their work into something more palatable to a wider audience.
It is something aimed to interest young adults and encourage them to go into a career in engineering."
