I've been researching a problem for a while now. My mother who is just about 80 years old can no longer speak as a result of cancer. I know she's become very flustrated because she can't talk on a phone. She can't type, so TTY devices won't work either.
I've looked at Tablet PC's thinking she could hand write a message, convert it to text, then play it on a speech synthysizer. Any tablet will do that, but since she's not a compter geek either, I don't know how hard it would be to teach her.
Does anyone think it would be possible to write simple program that would perform those actions automatically? Write a short message, and press a go button?
Please let me know what you think!
