Speak Up For Parkinson's

By Sandcastle

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.

Description

The Speak Up for Parkinson’s app is a useful tool for Parkinson’s patients to practice their speech. The approach pays special attention to the volume of the patient’s voice, a key factor that helps to address several of the challenges faced with Parkinson’s. Two practice tools are included: 1) Words & Phrases, a series of random statements are presented for the user to speak; and 2) Reading & Conversation, a free-form area allowing longer practice sessions. With both tools a volume meter is provided as well as audio/video feedback. The app also provides helpful Speaking Tips and additional information. Brought to you by the Northwest Parkinson’s Foundation.

Please note that iOS 7 is required for this application.

Speech Therapist

Nice idea for an app. It's good for words and phrases. It's great to have the video of the speaker with the biofeedback.
However, the app crashes frequently. The target volume is too high when the mic is 15-18" from the iPad speaker. The phrase bank is way too small. (We got duplicates in <5 trials.) It should include paragraphs and poems and such for reading.
I would love to see a graph with volume on the Y-axis and time on the X-axis (for speakers whose intensity drops at the end of his phrases.)
Looking forward to version 2.0!
