My husband has ALS. His is bulbar onset, meaning his speech and swallowing were his first symptoms. Although his speech seems to grow more slurred weekly, he still has use of his limbs. Finding MyTalk has been a Godsend, Bob is a very "no tech" kind of guy and as long as he still has the ability to use his hands, this will be our AAC device. It was important for him to be able to participate in setting this up and he now has a never ending list for me to work on, I am currently using it on our iPod Touch and I'm also testing the Android version, which is working fine, No authoring capabilities, but for me, that's not a big issue.
I tried two other products, but found them awkward to use. This has been so easy; the text-to-speech wonderful, and the internet graphics available are amazing. Wish I had found this while Bob's voice was stronger so he could record, but thankfully there was an option.
Keep up the great work!!
