OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Hillary Clinton is in the San Francisco Bay Area to launch a new campaign - to encourage parents to talk, read and sing to their babies.

The former secretary of state joined community leaders in Oakland on Wednesday to kick start the "Talking is Teaching: Talk Read Sing" campaign, which is co-sponsored by the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation.

The initiative is spurred by research that shows talking, reading and singing to infants boosts their brain development, vocabulary and school readiness.

The former first lady and U.S. senator spoke with the media about the baby-talking initiative but did not answer questions or discuss a potential presidential campaign in 2016.

This week Clinton also visited the Bay Area campuses of tech companies Facebook, Google and Twitter.
