New member looking for communication help for poorly mum?
New to the site so good evening to everyone :) I have a problem and wonder whether anyone could solve for me or at least point me in the right direction please? My mum is suffering from Bulbar Palsy which is progressive and terminal form of Motor Neurone Disease. This has robbed her of her voice completely and she is having to write on a notepad to communicate in any way. We have heard that there are apps for IPad that have programmes for text to speech and also that a new swype text app has been developed. If this is the case mum could possibly use an IPad as a communication device but I am not sure where to get these and also if they will work together. Did Google the swype text and it said that it will only open in notepad and doesnt work with anything else? Is this true or was that an old post and has it been developed further? If anyone could help I would be so very grateful, she has young grandchildren who cannot understand the writing so she can no longer talk to them.
Heres hoping someone has the knowledge!
