I was at a Branch meeting yesterday in Glasgow and one of the members whose speech is very slurred has been lent an iPad from the speech and language department to help with his communication. There is a free app called 'Speak It' where you type in what you want to say and then the iPad repeats it out loud. He is finding it helpful.
Although my speech is OK at the moment I use an iPad for other things. I find the touch screen easy to use-I particularly like the keys change colour momentarily when you have pressed a letter. I also really enjoy reading books on it. I can change the size of the print and can alter the brightness of the backlight. It is also easy to turn the pages. I have never used a kindle so I can't compare it to that.
I use my iPad for many other things-watching tv, e-mail, surfing the Internet, Health Unlocked, looking at photos, listening to music, playing games, reading newspapers, keeping up witn bbc news, creating documents to name but a few! I could waffle on for hours about how much I love it! I just wondered if anyone else uses one?
