TALK is a device which will help those who suffer with various types of speech impairments communicate with people in normal form of speech. When wearing the device, a person can use variations in his breath to spell out letters, convey emotions or feelings or even speak out specific, predefined commands. Using acute sensors and sophisticated software that can decipher and translate Morse Code, the device can increase the rate a speech impaired person can communicate by up to 300% as compared to current devices.

"TALK is an Augmentative and Alternative Communication Device (AAC) which enables people with Developmental Disabilities like Locked-In Syndrome & Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, Speech Impairments like Dysarthria and even Mutes to communicate using a normal form of speech," says Arsh Shah Dilbagi inventor of TALK.

TALK works when the user simply places a sensor underneath either their nose or mouth and then exhales in short or long bursts. A short burst of breath will be interpreted as a dot in Morse Code and a long breath will be interpreted as a dash. An ear piece lets the user know when the word has been completed. These steps can be repeated quickly to complete sentences and phrases. Once the user has finished, the device will read out the words that they have created. TALK can also be programmed with frequently used words or phrases so that the end user can more quickly and efficiently communicate what they would like to say.

The users don't have to learn complicated matrix maps to select the right symbols to synthesis speech nor do they have to strain their eyes by gazing over at a screen to express themselves. They only have to exhale, which they do thousands of times a day, to share their expressions or feelings.

According to Arido, brainchild of Arsh Shah Dilbagi, there are over 100 million people who could benefit from this type of device. In order to prove their passion for helping those who are suffering with speech impairments, Arido has pledged to give away a free device for every three that they sell to a person in need.

Arido is running an Indiegogo campaign to raise the funds that are needed to complete the project. The objective behind the Indiegogo Campaign is to fully develop TALK to ‘Make the World More Connected for Speech Impaired People’. They are also providing perks like T-Shirts, Thank You Notes and Poster for the funders who wish to help the humanity. Visit their Indiegogo campaign page for more information.
