This interdisciplinary project aims to assess and manage the risks related to the transition of the Kazakh language from Cyrillic to Latin by addressing the challenges of:
a) Teaching and motivating children to learn a new script and its associated handwriting, and b) Training and providing support for all demographic groups; in particular, the older generation. We present a system demonstration that proposes to assist and motivate children to learn new scripts with the help of a robot and a tablet with a stylus.
