I was notified of a Campaign for a new product coming out called the Talkitt. It's an unique product that's not your typical off-the-shelf speech recognition software. This App is pattern recognition, catered to each speaker.
"For example, a person with Cerebral Palsy might say ‘sho-ko-la’ when he really means to say ‘chocolate. The app will recognize that based on the user’s own personalized, pre-recorded dictionary.” says Danny Weissberg, the cofounder and CEO of Voiceit (who created Talkitt).
I think this is a great alternative to the traditional picture boards, the "touch & speak" , or the "eye movement typing" methods out there.
They're currently have a campaign to fundraise for this great idea, so go check them out at IndieGoGo Talkitt Campaign. Their Homepage is at www.talkitt.com.
This would help those with Speech Challenges, such as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS/Lou Gehrig's), Cerebral Palsy, Stroke, Brain Injury, Autism, Parkinson’s Disease.
Who knows it could probably help some Oral Deaf and Hard of Hearing people too. As you know with my "Deaf Accent" that Siri hates me Heh.
