Speaking does not hurt my throat but it can be exhausting to try to carry on a conversation for long. So I am looking for some ideas for aids that might make speaking easier for me. I’ve been looking on the internet but, because technology makes my head spin, I’m finding it all a bit overwhelming.
Does anyone have any suggestions on the following?
1) A microphone to project my voice. I use a lot of breath to push the words out through my lips. I thought if I could get microphone it might make it a bit easier. (Picture Madonna with a headpiece. Minus the pointy tassled boobs). Do I need a receiver or is there something where you can just speak into it and it will project the sound?
2) A speech synthesizer for my laptop. It’s definitely easier to type than to speak. I’ve been looking at a product called TextAloud that reads what you type out loud. Does anyone know anything about these programs and what I should be looking for?
Thanks for your help!
