Founded by Roger Tucker and eldest son Dave in 2007, Sononcent is a start-up hoping to ‘harness the power of spoken language’ with software that allows recordings to be annotated.

The software, which Roger invented, is now an award-winning multimedia technique which is particularly useful to dyslexic students.

With an office in Florida now open, the company is expanding internationally.
