TD Talk is a text to speech app that empowers people to talk using just their eyes or fingers. It’s designed for literate adults who cannot use their voice, their hands or both, including people with disabilities such as MND, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy and locked-in syndrome. When used with TD Pilot, an iPad-based, eye tracking-enabled speech generating device by Tobii Dynavox, it unlocks the ability to:

• talk using just your eyes via the world’s leading eye tracking technology

• talk using just your fingers, by typing the words you want to speak

• join any conversation with fast, customized, predictive sentence construction

• correct typos with in-sentence editing using just your eyes

• express yourself in 35+ languages and voices

• have face-to-face conversations via the Partner Window on a TD Pilot device

Join the conversation

TD Talk empowers people to communicate who they are and what they want to say, in the most fluid way possible:

Converse naturally

• participate naturally in dialogue by displaying your typed text to your conversation partner in the rear-facing Partner Window on a TD Pilot device

• select your language of choice and switch to it seamlessly

Express yourself quickly

• remain an active part of any conversation with the ability to use predicted text and to edit errors directly within a sentence

• maintain a more natural speaking pace with QuickMessages, pre-programmed common and custom phrases such as ‘I need help’ and ‘wait please, I’m typing’

Sound like yourself

• express yourself more fluidly thanks to phrase prediction, which learns and adapts to your personal communication style

• choose from a selection of pre-recorded synthetic voices to find one you most identify with

• import a custom synthetic voice that mimics your natural one with voice banking from one of the following vendors: Acapela (my-own-voice), Model Talker, The Voice Keeper 

Using TD Talk without TD Pilot

Some people may want to try TD Talk on an iPad without using TD Pilot, such as:

• those with progressive degenerative conditions transitioning from touch to eye gaze access

• clinicians who want to try TD Talk on behalf of their clients

• hospitals and other institutions

PLEASE NOTE, using TD Talk on an iPad without the TD Pilot device will mean:

• touch access only (no eye tracking access)

• a smaller selection of languages and voices
