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.
