The First African Language API

Igbo is a rich Nigerian language that’s spoken by approximately 45 million people. Unfortunately, despite the language's wide use, it's considered to be a low resource language. The Igbo API aims to change this by making the process of learning Igbo more accessible to the Nigerian diaspora and beyond.
