In order to help young listeners with speech-sound disorders, Apple Music has partnered with Rothco and Warner Music to develop a series of playlists called ‘Saylists.’

According to BBC, Rothco and Warner Music have relied on algorithms to identify songs that feature challenging sounds for young children with speech-sound disorders.

So far Apple Music has added 173 tracks to the playlist. Among the tracks added, Don’t start now by Dua Lipa and Right Now by Fatboy slim have made it to the playlist.

In Apple’s 70 million song catalog, the algorithm analyses the lyrics of all the songs and identifies the tracks that would repeat these sounds most often before adding them to the playlist.

According to the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (or ASHA), a speech sound disorder is also known as an articulation disorder and is used to describe issues faced by children who don’t say sounds by the time they reach the appropriate age.
