THE APP THAT GIVES A VOICE TO PEOPLE WITH SPEECH DISORDER THE APP: Talkitt WHO IT HELPS: People with motor, speech and language disorders – including but not limited to Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), Cerebral Palsy, stroke, brain damage, autism and Parkinson’s disease. WHAT IT DOES: The Talkitt app translates unintelligible pronunciation into understandable speech, allowing people to communicate using their own voice. The technology behind the app is brilliant – by recognizing each individual user’s vocal patterns, it “speaks” their words in a coherent manner – thus allowing them to communicate clearly and easily. Even more amazing? The program works in every language. 2. THE APP THAT GIVES EYES TO THE BLIND THE APP: Be My Eyes WHO IT HELPS: People who are blind or visually impaired. WHAT IT DOES: Be My Eyes connects blind people who need assistance with sighted volunteers who want to help out via a direct video connection. Currently available for iPhone and coming soon for Android, the app can be used in a variety of situations – for example a blind person might need help checking the expiration date on a milk carton, or making their way around new surroundings. They enter a request for assistance and the volunteer gets a notification that the blind person could use some help. Arguably the best app for blind people, there are currently over 90,000 sighted volunteers active on Be My Eyes, and some 7,000 blind people using the app. 3. THE APP WITH NO WORDS THAT SPEAKS TO AUTISTIC CHILDREN THE APP: Avaz WHO IT HELPS: Children with autism spectrum disorders, Downs syndrome, Angelman’s Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, and other speech disabilities. WHAT IT DOES: This Australian app enables children with autism and other disorders to “speak” using pictures – in a variety of situations. For example, the app can be used in speech therapy sessions, on a day-to-day basis to develop language, and to stimulate and improve the intent to communicate. The app uses picture symbols and high-quality voice synthesis to help non-verbal users create messages and improve language skills. The cherry on top is a powerful keyboard that helps users transitioning to text – growing with the child as he or she develops. 4. THE APP THAT PUTS CAPTIONS ON PHONE CALLS THE APP: RogerVoice WHO IT HELPS: People who are deaf and hearing impaired. WHAT IT DOES: RogerVoice uses voice recognition to convert voice to text, so deaf people can “hear” phone calls by reading. This video from the startup’s successful Kickstarter campaign shows the app in action – beginning with a surprised mother receiving a call from her deaf daughter for the first time. The app is due to launch in March 2015 for Android devices. 5. THE APP THAT IMPROVES EYE CONTACT AND COMMUNICATION THE APP: LOOK AT ME WHO IT HELPS: Autistic children. WHAT IT DOES: Designed to improve socialization skills for autistic children, Samsung’s LOOK AT ME app gamifies interactions, helping users learn to read moods, remember faces, and express themselves with facial expressions and poses. A test group found that playing the game for just 15 minutes per day for an eight-week period can bring about a 60% improvement in making eye contact and identifying facial expressions – definitely one of the best apps to use modern technology to change interpersonal communication. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Featured image Select file Browse Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
