Summary

Communication tool that allows a user to convey needs through photographs taken with the phone, and sentences typed in. A user clicks on an item saved (consisting of a picture and a sentence), and presses the ‘Talk’ button. The app speaks the sentence (and can translate it into over 30 languages). Input may be customised into user-defined batches of pictures and sentences, making them relevant to the user. An almost-unlimited number of pictures and sentences can be added and organised. For people with a speech/learning difficulty, and for people visiting other countries.

Reviews

Reviewer: Dystonia Ireland
Review: “County Louth man, Karl McEvoy, who has a rare neurological movement disorder known as dystonia, has been given the gift of speech, thanks to a new revolutionary app developed by his father. Karl, now 21 years old, developed dystonia at four years of age, resulting in him being unable to communicate verbally with many people (apart from his family). The new app, ‘Talkforme’, has been developed by his father, Hugh, and gives people with a range of speech-impaired disabilities a tool to get their voices heard.”
