    Welcome to the Forum, Lodgy.

    Even though your progression is slow, it's still very hard to cope with function loss.

    Sorry to hear your speech is affected - if you haven't discussed communication Apps with your SLT (Speech & Language Therapist) it's advisable to.

    Take care.

    Love Ellie.

      Hi Lodgy and welcome.

      You may wish to explore this option for speech. It is free for pwmnd and even if your voice is poor they can repair it so that it sounds like you when using the speech app. As an example I used my recorded voice last night to host a family quiz as quizmaster and everyone was pleased with the results. When living with MND we have to explore all the technology to enable us to have a better quality of life.

          I’ve recently acquired Speech Assistant app - it’s easy to use and the best one I’ve ever used
