Reverie Technologies has won the India edition of Qualcomm’s Q Prize. The finals held today in Mumbai saw 8 companies pitch their ideas to the judges who comprised of VCs and representatives from Qualcomm and Microsoft. Reverie provides users with the choice to read text in any language independent of the source language of the text. A device manufacturer does not need to support all complex scripts of the world on the device if they make use of Reverie’s products. The company thereby enables display of, interaction in and content creation in local languages.
