I've recently got an IPad 3 and am using the app Speakit as a means of communicating because I have a dsiability which, among other things, makes it difficult for me to make myself heard and understood when I speak. Love the iPad because it doesn't stand out as stereotypically disabled like other forms of AAC and can be used for lots of things besides talking. My only problem is the iPad isn't loud enough in noisy environments like restaurants (and my college refectory!) At the moment I'm getting round it by getting people to read the screen but this is impractical. Does anyone know how to make the iPad louder without using a speaker? I've been looking into small, wireless speakers on amazon but the customer reviews are mixed at best. A speaker with a wire would be awkward as the iPad as mounted on my wheelchair and I'd need the wire to reach the nearest surface on which I could place the speaker or to reach my lap and have the speaker there which would be a bit unstable.
Thanks, any help will be greatly appreciated.
