Join us for this amazing episode with successful dyslexic and young tech entrepreneur, Cliff Weitzman on how he created a tech solution for dyslexics like himself to turn text into speech, and earned a spot on "Forbes 30 under 30."

A senior at Brown University and Google Student ambassador, Weitzman has come up with a solution to reading disorders and difficulties. His software program transfers text to speech, making reading more accessible for users who are dyslexic (like him) and hard of sight, or English as a second language readers. This TEDx speaker's resume also includes placing first at Stanford's ASES Summit competition.
