Reviewer: Patient group specialising in neurological conditions, UK
Review: “A text-to-speech provider. Speech therapists and occupational therapists (OTs) recommend them, instead of more expensive and outmoded devices, such as Lightwriters. 6%-10% of the patients with whom we are familiar use the app.”
