Speech Clarifier or Articulator - Assistive Technology

This blog posting is in response to the Make Magazine request to "Invent a Speech Aid to Help Malia Communicate"


Those with these conditions might have troubles with others understanding their speech....Stroke, Aphonia, Dysphonia, Laryngectomy, Cerebral Palsy, Voice Disorders, Multiple Sclerosis, Spinal Cord Injury, Parkinson's Disease, Huntington's Disease, Traumatic Brain Injury, Muscular Dystrophy, Other Neuromuscular Disorders, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), Spasmodic Dysphonia, Paralyzed Vocal Cords.

The purpose of this post is to provide a list of some existing "speech clarifiers".  People can then use these off-the-shelf solutions and/or inventors can make new and better clarifiers.  Using the search string below, you can find "more like this", if needed.

This post concentrates on voice-in > clarified voice out, instead of other adaptive devices, e.g. text to speech, point at icons, etc.

Health /Medical Makers & Inventors - Resource List - Communication Hub on LinkedIn and Facebook now.





Below is a partial list of Health/Medical Makers & Inventors...(let me know if there are more)
 
Informal "making" or "inventing" is becoming more popular.  This is partly due to the rising maker culture
Some people have been devising medical devices and solutions out of the "professional" realm for some time, however. 
*  One example of this is retired engineers getting together and making adaptive devices for disabled people. 
*  Another example are the myriads of people in low-income countries devising solutions for their medical problems.
