My wife is an ataxia sufferer - difficult to know when it began but at least ten years ago. She was finally diagnosed (in France where we live) in 2007/8 - type unknown. One major problem between us communication - her speech is quite slurred most of the time but also QUIET. It is difficult to talk in the house but almost impossible in the car. Has anyone else experience of this problem and found a way to help get round it. I have made a couple of enquiries but so far to no avail. (For info, her hearing is not 100% - she has two hearing aids - but this is not an ataxia problem - hereditory from her father.)
