Handwriting-to-speech application makes conversation a reality for people with speech difficulties
PR Log - Dec 02, 2012 - HandySpeech™ - This assistive technology application supplements or replaces speech for people with spoken language difficulties. HandySpeech™helps people with one or more speech or language impairments, including autism, stuttering, stroke, muscular dystrophy, post-operative voice difficulties, and others. Users write what they want to say in any one of 13 languages and the software converts the handwriting into speech.
