[prMac.com] West Hartford, Connecticut - iSpeak4U LLC. has announced "HandySpeech" recognition by the Connecticut General Assembly.
HandySpeech is one-of-the-kind handwriting-to-speech application on the app store providing a unique opportunity for people with speech disabilities to communicate.
The app creator, Eric Zeiberg, is 12-year-old who was inspired by his autistic sister. He has been recognized by Connecticut General Assembly for his contribution to quality of life for people with speech disabilities.
"I hope that HandySpeech will provide much needed help and open new opportunities for people in need," said Eric. "The application is dedicated to courageous people who struggle every day to overcome their disabilities."
As an assistive speech technology application, HandySpeech supplements or even completely replaces speech for people with spoken language difficulties. The application helps people with speech or language impairments, including stroke, muscular dystrophy, oral cancer, throat and neck cancer, expressive aphasia, dysarthria, autism, stuttering among others. Users simply write what they want to say in any one of 13 languages, hit a button, and the writing instantly turns into male or female voice.
Eric Zeiberg, HandySpeech creator, has been recognized for his effort by CT General Assembly, had a brief conversation with Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy, and met with the state Senate and state House leadership.
"We are very proud of Eric in our district," said Senator Beth Bye, Assistant Senate Majority Leader. "I think the whole state is proud of him for using his energy for something that helps people who need help".
