Hi Evertonian!

Can you give me the reference of the App?

Have the app, but because Hubby never used a computer (qwerty board) he tends to drag his finger (both hands crippled up too) and gets no where with the actual spelling of a word, found the alphabet board the best, although again he drags or floats over the letters and doesn't stop when finished a word, I have become good at charades

We got dad a go talk unit. You can record onto it and then they just press the relevant button for what they want ie cup of tea, I love you.

The good think is if you get it before your loved one loses their speech they can do the recordings. We have done that with dad so he is with us forever .

Hi Pjgil!

Thanks for your contribution.

Unfortunately in my case it is too late.

Unfortunately, hubby can no longer talk as such, it is a game of charades for us, frustrating extremely frustrating

Such a simple tool, and yet I hadn't even thought about it, but drat it all, I think I gave away my old music stand. Using a laser pointer would probably soon be easier than pointing for dad, but the pointer wouldn't require as much movement.
