      My lightwriter is quite good and I have had it for over four years. It has advantages over I Pads as well as disadvantages. As I have a lightwriter they won't give me an I Pad. I could buy one but I have been looking at apps for cheaper tablets.

      I have "Free speech" on one but I just looked and can't adjust it's speed or stopping at full stops.

      My Laptop also has a couple of talking programs on but that is not so easy to take out.

      Thanks, love Terry

        I have just looked at my settings on my android tablet and you can adjust the speed of the speech there, again I don't know if that can be done in the I Pad systems.

            Hi Terry
            The pad i bought on e bay was not in an auction it was a buy it now . The series 1 has no camera, slow and will not handle bigger apps thats why they are cheap . The one i got came with 3 months waranty. They are perfect for speakit and little chance of getting mugged . so total cost was £71.49. I had asked my S.L.T who asked MNDA and they provided the very latest pad with predictable on it. the process took 3 months . Terry i am sure you will qualify but i also know you will not get one if you dont ask. You know the saying God helps them who help themselves well it true.

              Hi Terry, il have a look tomorrow on dads iPad and see if I can change these setting on predictable. It's a shame the mnd team don't lend you an iPad as they done this with dad and gave him the app free also.

              I could imagine the laptop could be a bit big for carrying around.

              Thanks katrina x

                Thanks the two K,s

                Afew years ago I asked for the app and about an I Pad, they do not want to give out I Pads, as they could be used by other people and would only supply the app if I gave up my light writer.

                The situation might have changed a bit since then but the Mnda have and do help me with some things and I think that it is important that other people get help as well.

                Being a long termer, there is perhaps less of a financial implications, as cost's are spread over a longer period.

                It would be perhaps nice to help others with I Pads get the best out of theirs but maybe others can do that.

                Love Terry

                  Hi Terry
                  There is only one thing we have all in common on hear that is we are all buggered. We only ask for what we need . True enough the two of us are doing better than most . This could all change tomorrow. You my mate will go the extra mile for anyone who comes on hear wanting help. We have both done our bit raising funds for MND with the intention of buying thing to help others. I consider you as worthy as any one.

I'm going to see if he can get a different app as he doesn't like it,, any ideas would be welcome as to a better app?... Thanks Katrina x

                            Hi Katrina;

                            The "Speak it" that Dvd is talking about is for android tablets and is made by "Triple". It is quite basic but there is an upgrade for 99p. The full version has a storage area for sounds and I believe text. Also alarms for tablet times and it get rid of the advertising. Probably a few other things as well but not extra voices that the other version has.

                            The "Speak It" that Miranda is talking about is for an I Pad and might be made by some one else. It also costs £1.49 and has a few extras.

                            If I'm wrong please PM me.

                            Love Terry

                                What sort of speaking software are you looking at and who's helping you do that.
