    JAC You should have been provided with a file which you can download onto your (compatible) Windows device for the voice to work - any recollection of getting an email with a download link? xx

      Have you paid for the necessary download? Have you had help from your SALT or MNDA?

        I used Acapela via MNDA support to bank my voice and now going for the Predictable app to use with my phone. Again with support from MNDA and my SALT team nurse. I got confused with it all so SALT nurse took over. Speak to your SALT team and MNDA...both so far have been great. Fingers crossed😉

        Just to add MNDA suggested I need an iPhone or iPad for Predictable however I've got an Android phone and will need to purchase the app. (MNDA can help with costs and again your SALT team can progress)
        Initial diagnosis 7-4-2021 'suspected MND' confirmed by 2nd opinion 4th June 2021 ALS. Began with R foot limp and lots of falls. Generally weak. Mostly terrified.​​​​​​

          MNDA might be able to lend you an iPad long term if you don’t have one.

            thanks all. both are paid for, i've downloaded the files but the issue is i don't know what commercially available (compatible) Windows device/software package i need to play/use them. "SpeakUnique voices are compatible with a large range of Windows devices. SpeakUnique voices will work on Windows computers that have AVX support."

            but that doesn't give me a specific route for a non-techie. Have MND comms specialist next week but i'm just so frustrated in the meantime. I know, patience and forebearance; - clearly i haven't made that gracious adjustment yet.....
