A mobile app startup, recently launched its first app, called “Verbally”, which is designed to bring speech to individuals who are unable to communicate verbally. The app, which is Free for the iPad, allows users to tap the words they wish to communicate onto the app’s keyboard, or choose from pre-prepared words or phrases, which are then in turn transmitted into audio phrases. Verbally has been downloaded 20K+ times since its iTunes launch in March. With more than six million people in the U.S. having speech disabilities, this could be a real find for all settings these individuals find themselves in, including the workforce.
