New Cell Phone Interface for Speech Impaired Highlighted on Blog Talk Radio

New Blog Talk Radio/No Limits 2 Learning Live Segment "Romancing the Phone"

Use any phone with "The Speech Assistant" developed by couple/user team Jay and Melissa Blockman.
While courting, Melissa developed spasmodic dysphonia and the couple had to resort to a voice relay system to communicate over the phone. Out of a desire to see a seamless and private way to communicate, Jay began working on a system that could interface a computer's text to speech software with any phone to communicate.
Tune in this Friday, January 30 at 7 PM Pacific to hear Jay and Melissa tell about their journey and use their Speech Assistant to share with us.
You can tune in and call to ask questions and comment on the show site or catch the archive afterwards on my blog sidebar player.

All the best to you!
