Welcome to iSpeak4U
We make conversation a reality for people with speech difficulties.
The only handwriting-to-speech application for iOS devices, HandySpeech provides people with speech disabilities a quick and easy conversational tool. The application’s ability to translate handwritten text into spoken language makes HandySpeech easier to use and more natural than commercially available keyboarding solutions.
Because HandySpeech can be used on iPad, iPhone and iPod devices, it is portable and readily accessible via WIFI or cell phone connection. The application remembers frequently used phrases, learns the user’s handwriting style, understands cursive, print and mixed writing styles and contains a dictionary for unusual words.
To help a diversity of individuals with speech disabilities, the application generates natural-sounding male and female voices in a total of 13 languages.
HandySpeech is a valuable tool for individuals with a variety of speech and language impairments, including those are living with oral, head, neck or larynx cancer, Muscular Dystrophy, Lou Gehrig’s disease, or autism; who have experienced stroke or brain injury; and those with post-operative voice difficulties.
HandySpeech was created by 13-year-old software developer Eric Zeiberg, who was inspired to create the application by his sister -- an autistic individual with speech disabilities.
