    I use an iPhone but honestly don't spend fortunes on fancy word apps. Think Hawkins. We end up sounding like Robbie the Robot whatever. 🤖😂🤗🔚xx

    I was advised to get an iPad to use predictable app 😉

    Hi,
    I don’t think my voice sounds like me ..more like a robot .I am still messing with predictable 6 trying to get used to how to use it.I still can talk but a lot weaker.

    Can the predictable app be linked to use between IPhone and IPad ?

    Sorry forgot to say, we have listened to a sample of her voice, if is slightly robotic but it’s still her.

    Sorry to jump on this one.
    My wife Tracy has done voice banking with Richard Cave, I think it’s aceplea, looking at using predictable.
    my question is we have got to get a new tablet, any recommendations?
    was thinking of an IPad Pro as this can be linked to her phone.

    speak unique is far from perfect but sounds like me and is a big improvement on modeltalker. i've not heard any that aren't expressionless. i contacted them direct Ellie. can't remember if i needed to go via mnda to get charge waived - i think they did that

    Hello Sarah, in my experience whichever system you choose you end up sounding robotic. The biggest thing we loose is emotive wording. The way I shout is I write very large letters. 😉😁🤗😍xx

    There is an application for MNDA funding on SU’s website. Cost was £175.

    It's not good to hear of so many voice bankers being so disappointed with their banked voices 😟

    Back in the Dark Ages, it wasn't a thing when I lost my speech and like Sally Ann, I use a generated voice - she's my alter ego 😏

    Sometimes people use a sibling' or a friend's voice. xx

    I had my voice repaired by Speak Unique and was very disappointed with the outcome. The voice is dreary, lacks authority and sounds nothing like me when I was well. I now use Predictable with a free voice from the Text to Speech app, called Kate. Speak Unique was organised through my S&LT. The only thing I can recommend about It is that the predictive text is good. I also had to buy a new phone as my old one didn’t support the Speak Unique app. And now Kevin Bacon keeps telling me that I need to upgrade that as well!

    That's good to hear Robin 👍 Can you remember who organised it, SLT, Richard Cave or someone else? xx
