Tennesseans have a new tool to help them file workers' compensation claims. It's an app that lets them fill out key forms by speaking into a smartphone. 

According to the Tennessee Bureau of Workers' Compensation, filling out the necessary forms is a major barrier to workers seeking compensation for on-the-job injuries.

The new tool lets users type or speak answers to questions that are used to fill out the forms. At the conclusion of the interview, the tool provides a completed form accepted in all workers' compensation courts in Tennessee.

The tool, called "WC Bot," is a free at www.HELP4TN.org.
