Giving a voice to people without one
HandySpeech 5.1 is here!
New Price: $2.99
The HandySpeech app is appropriate for individuals who have a speech disorder resulting from a vocal fold pathology (i.e., affecting the larynx). This includes individuals with oral and laryngeal cancers, motor speech disorders affecting the larynx and oral structures such as apraxia of speech, and patients who are placed on vocal rest due to recent surgery to treat vocal nodules or overuse of their voice. This app could also be useful for individuals with ALS and muscular dystrophy as long as they have enough motor control to write. This app will help to reduce the frustration and helplessness associated with the inability to talk.
"We are so blessed to have this technology and that Eric developed the wonderful app!
My husband really likes the app and hopefully get many years of use out of it. Thank you for developing it!
I can now have a conversation with my best friend!"
"Typing takes two hands, a great deal of physical dexterity and specific skills not everyone has. Handwriting is more universal, which is what makes this technology stand out."
