3393-Talking Aid

If you had a severe disability in communication by cerebral infarction and so on, what would you need? It will be irritated that we can’t come to do what we can do before. Let me introduce Talking Aid which helps people with inconvenience of communication from physical paralysis.


Taking Aid (T-Aid) is a talking touch tablet that enables someone with language disabilities to communicate. This system has two types: Key-text type and Symbol-text type. We can type alphabets, kana, and symbol keyboards. The information is transformed into a synthesized voice. As for typing symbols, since there are a lot of patterns, we can express more emotions. In recent years, this system is introduced to iPhone, iPad as applications.


Now assistive technology is developing remarkably compared with the past. Therefore we should think about how to use the technology.
