Tia Foster (Sociology) & Katherine Franks – ReSight winners of the 2017 UNCA Social Entrepreneurship Competition

ReSight is a photo to speech cellphone application that provides multisensory resources for students with learning and reading disabilities.

The ReSight concept was developed by Katherine Franks and Tia Foster (pictured below) — their team placed first in the 2017 UNC Asheville Social Entrepreneurship Competition. Following the competition, Katherine continued to work on ReSight as an undergraduate research project with Luther Wardle who is developing the program code.
