INVITE - INcorporating VoIce acTivated communication aids into Everyday communication (vimeo.com)

Hello,

My name is Kate Fryer and I’m from the University of Sheffield.

I am part of a team, doing research into voice input communication aids.

Developments in speech recognition technology have led to apps which can learn to recognise a set of words or sounds spoken by the individual with dysarthria, and connect these with a clear spoken output, known as voice input voice output communication aids. Our previous research provides some evidence that these voice input communication apps may be faster than traditional communication aids.

We would like to find out more about who will benefit from this technology, how they will use it, and what support they need to use it. This will help us to make sure that the people who could benefit from this app will get the opportunity to try it, and get the support they need to use it to help them.

If you are an adult, with moderate to severe dysarthria, you could get involved.

To find out more, please contact me, Kate, on 07726597377, or k.fryer@sheffeld.ac.uk
