HandySpeech Mobile App helping those with speech disabilities

The HandySpeech mobile app is a handwriting-to-speech application that provides a unique opportunity for people with speech disabilities to communicate.

HandySpeech was created by 12-year-old software developer Eric Zeiberg, who was inspired to create the application by his sister -- an autistic individual with speech disabilities. “I hope that HandySpeech will provide much needed help and open new opportunities for people in need,” said Zeiberg. “The application is dedicated to courageous people who struggle every day to overcome their disabilities.”

As an assisted speech technology application, HandySpeech supplements or even fully replaces speech for people with spoken language difficulties. The application helps people with speech or language impairments, including autism, stuttering, stroke, muscular dystrophy, neck, throat or oral cancer among others. Users write what they want to say in any one of 13 languages and the software converts the handwriting into speech.
