    Hi Dis,

    Thanks for sharing this. I think the designers have missed a trick when they promote the device as a convenient way of saving time for able bodied people in a world of tech equipment. I’m convinced it will be useful for those of us with poor or no speech but we are a minority market so of little value to the designers.

    Best wishes,
    Barry
    Iím going to do this even if it kills me!

    It has been suggested e.g. one of the f.a.q.s
    Could this device help people with speech impairments?
    The system could possibly help people with speech impairments such as Apraxia, Cluttering, and other voice disorders. We have yet to conduct formal and extensive studies on how the platform could help people with speech impairments.

    So far the background data doesn’t exist for more than some simple phrases and I’ve seen one explanation of the technology that implies that facial muscles are being used which would limit the usefulness
