Voiceitt cofounder and CEO Danny Weissberg said, "Voiceitt provides a new dimension of independence and quality of life for people with speech and motor disabilities, and a compelling tool for those who care for and about them. Our technology helps with this and much more. With the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, our objectives are not only to support the individual's in-person communication, but also to assist healthcare professionals and support the continuum of care for their patients."

The company has 25 employees at its office in Ramat Gan in Israel and the US. Voiceitt's network of international partners includes healthcare providers, speech and occupational therapists, researchers, and disability organizations in the US and throughout Europe.
