    Heather R you might find this interesting, although I've not used it.

    Hi Heather,

    You can use the app on your phone either android or iOS. You can change the speed of the speech under settings and I always slow mine down. You rightly point out that speech is affected by stress and now I refuse to use the telephone unless there is a text option.

    That's great, Barry, sounds like a great idea. I am just getting to the stage that I dread having to sort things out verbally, and this dread makes my voice even worse. I have stored my voice with speak unique, and guess I need to get an iPad to use it, as my desktop is not that portable of course! It's interesting for me to hear another speak unique voice, I find that the voice sometimes doesn't leave enough time between sentences, and of course sounds fairly monotonous, but then again so much better than mine as it is!

    And so it should, Barry - it was a very kind and thoughtful act.

    Love Ellie.

    My daughters are both primary school teachers and I was discussing communication aids with them recently. One daughter has a young boy in her class who has speech issues. Although he has a speech app he feels awkward using it in front of the class. I guess some children are like adults when it comes to patience. I made a short video addressing him personally using my SpeakUnique voice. My daughter said his face lit up when she played it to him and that gives me a warm fuzzy feeling.

    You're great, Barry, well done and thanks!

    Really hope that the scheme is successful and that people with communication difficulties notice a genuine improvement in their retail/social experience.

    Love Ellie.

    started a topic Communication symbol

    Communication symbol

    I assumed that MNDA would announce on the forum what they launched today and put on Facebook.

    Since I appear in the video please don’t take this sharing as egotistical but I believe in increasing awareness of the problems people like me have when your voice fails. We hope that many businesses and organisations will adopt the practice and that in time the symbol will become as widely recognised as the wheelchair for disabled.
