SpeechPacer 

Helps improves speech clarity for patients who speak to quickly or too slowly.

 

Helps patient speak more slowly or more quickly, especially for patients who are talking so fast that their speech is not clear.

In 2011, we increased the amount of material in this program by 400%, including Sherlock Holmes and famous American speeches (over 36,000 words, which should take a patient about 8 hours to work through the first time. Most patients read the same stories many, many times).

Speech Pacer shows patient text to read and moves a text-highlighting cursor along to pace a user’s reading rate. Patient speaks each word, phrase, or sentence as it is highlighted.

Users may select from the following options:

  • Automatic (timed) cursor advance
  • Manual advance (cursor moves when the right arrow is pressed)
  • Word, phrase, or sentence highlighting
  • Enlarged font (text) size.
