A tool to provide speech impaired individuals with a mean to communicate.
Designers: Xuanvinh Q. Vu, Rath Chim, Jeong Lee
HandiTalk was designed to be a means for speech impaired individuals to communicate with their environment. One of its main features is ease of use. HandiTalk is a two part project. One part is a button used as an input device. The other part of the project is the application. It has a timer that highlights items (pictures, letters) for a set period of time. The patient waits for the item that they want to be highlighted and then they select it via the input device. The computer will then generate a descriptive speech for the corresponding item.
