Speech and therapy software for speech disabled

5 August 2007

Touch & Talk Software International has launched its Touch & Talk Speech Communication and Therapy Software package.

The Touch & Talk system is a speech communication and therapy tool for patients suffering from stroke, ALS, MD, autism, cancer, trauma and other speech communication disabilities.

Patients simply point, click, tap or type words from alphabetized word or phrase lists to build sentences and Touch & Talk's built-in text-to-speech engine will narrate the intended text to speech with a male or female voice through the computer's speakers.

There are also communication enhancements such as emergency alerts, optional instant messaging, medication reminders and caregiver log, as well as large buttons and screen options to assist patients with impaired vision and in regaining lost motor control.

Touch & Talk has been developed and tested by patients and medical professionals since 2003 and is currently available in English for Windows based PC's, laptop and touch screen computers. The Touch & Talk Spanish release is expected early 2008.
