Handwriting-to-speech app helps those with severe language difficulties.

 

ISpeak4U has announced the availability of HandySpeech, the only handwriting-to-speech application for the iPad.

 

The assistive technology application supplements or replaces speech for people with spoken language difficulties, such as autism, stuttering, stroke, muscular dystrophy, post-operative voice difficulties, and others. Users write what they want to say in any one of thirteen languages, and the software converts the handwriting into speech.

 

HandySpeech was created by 12-year-old Eric Zeiberg, who was inspired by his sister, Julie, who has speech disabilities as a result of autism.
