Created by 12-year-old software developer Eric Zeiberg who was inspired by his autistic sister with speech disabilities, HandySpeech was featured in the Hartford Courant article.

"I hope it will make people's lives better," said Eric.

As an assisted speech technology application, HandySpeech supplements or even replaces speech for people with spoken language difficulties. The application helps people with speech or language impairments, including autism, stuttering, stroke, muscular dystrophy, oral, throat and neck cancer among others.

Users write what they want to say in any one of 13 languages and the software converts the handwriting into speech.

"This is what was needed for our group members and many others who have problems with speaking. It will make a big difference for us as we have been so frustrated. We can't believe - it's a God send," said Alice N., a cancer survivor.

"My wife and I have been using this app for several days now. I can say that thisapplication fills a void in available speech software. It is what maybe is the easiest and fastest way to carry on a quick or casual conversation. The application's ability to recognize and learn your handwriting is excellent. This is a nice contribution to the quality of life for speech impaired folks," said Robert T., a HandySpeech user.
