ThinkTalk

This app gives the user the ability to type words and select phrases by blinking. It has an easy to use interface, and does not require knowledge of Morse Code, or any other code schemes. Once a phrase is "blink-typed" or "blink-selected", the user can blink on a command to have the mobile device speak the phrase via the mobile device's audio speaker.


The purpose of this app is to enable people to communicate that don't have the use of their limbs, and don't have the ability to vocalize speech. With all of the recent attention on ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease), this app was written as an answer to an internal challenge to provide something with the potential to help existing and future ALS patients, as well as other people with disabilities that don't have enough manual dexterity for touch-based apps and they also don't have the ability to vocalize. Other systems that use eye-tracking are very costly by comparison to the combination of this app and an affordable NeuroSky MindWave Mobile headset.


The app can also be used to educate able-bodied people regarding certain challenges facing those with a combination of paralysis/muscle control combined with the loss of speech.


The app requires the use of a NeuroSky MindWave Mobile Bluetooth enabled headset. http://NeuroSky.com

What's New

Added a new edit screen so you can long tap and drag to rearrange phrases, so that they can be grouped and ordered in a way that will be easy for the patient/user to access them by blinking.

Another new feature is voice confirmation of blink-typing. Also added voice confirmation to the space key, backspace key, and confirmation when a phrase is successfully added to the phrase library.
