Touch Voice was designed to address alternative communication needs for some persons with stroke, surgery and other conditions* which affect their speaking ability.
*Medical conditions in which Touch Voice may be able to help people better communicate are: Stroke, ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease), traumatic brain injury, Brain tumor, Cerebral palsy, Multiple sclerosis, Ataxia, Laryngeal Cancer and others.
Using Touch Voice, a person can "speak" words and sentences easily by touching their finger to the touch-sensitive screen. A male or female computer-synthesized voice can be selected.
People who can't speak are frustrated trying to communicate with their caregivers, friends, and loved ones. Just as others can be flustrated in trying to communicate with them. Or their speech may be just too weak or inarticulate to understand. By using Touch Voice, they can quickly and easily voice their needs and feelings, thereby better communicating in general. Ultimately this can reduce their stress levels, lead to better care and aid in their recovery.
Touch Voice can be used in any common setting, home, hospital, on the go, etc.
