Posted on 07/30/2011 8:13:58 AM PDT by Vermont Lt
Good morning. My wife just got an iPad and as I am using it, I think it would be a wonderful tool for an uncle who has had a stroke. He is unable to speak well, but his mind is clear and I can see in his eyes the frustration of not being able to get his point across.
Does anyone know of a decent text/icon to speech software product that we might be able to get.
If it works well, I am sure it will add a quality to his life that has been missing for a while.
Hi Vermont- I have an IPad too. I have read of all different apps for medical problems. Just type in a full sentence of what your trying to get at on google. I do an I bet your answer will show up from an article about an apps. I find alot of info this way. I wish you the best.
This got good reviews
Best of luck to you and him.
I spend a couple of hours this morning doing just that. What I found were a bunch of apps designed for converting text to speech, but I am not sure his dexterity was good enough for the small text keys.
I guess the perfect app would be something that had icons for phrases, or really, really big icons for typing.
I figured there are a lot of folks on FR who are taking care of patients in similar condition and might have seen something along the way.
I appreciate your response. And I will keep searching. If there is not one today, someone will make one tomorrow. I should just download the developers kit and make one myself.
There’s a free one called “Verbally” - I’ve played with it - for free, it would get the job done.
Just got this link. For those on similar quests.
