I spent my career talking. It was my job! For thirteen years, I worked as a radio reporter before I was diagnosed with ALS. Gradually, my voice cracked and faded along with my body. In 2004, I was put on a ventilator and my voice was silenced permanently. I tried other communication devices, but they were all far too rudimentary; seemingly designed for children, and later haphazardly altered for adult use. Then we discovered eyetech. Finally, a computer system for the future that allows me to do everything I need! I’ve used Eyetech products for over ten years now and relish the freedom it has provided. Easy to set up, easy to learn and fun to use. It has given me back my voice!
