Using Avaz for a practical purpose in the real world

I would like to share a very practical use that we could put Avaz to for our son recently. He has power in his eye and usually during eye checkups we depend on the machine test only bcos he cant do the reading test as he is a non verbal 14 year old boy on the autism spectrum. A few months back for the reading test the Shankara Eye hospital (in Bangalore, India) Vision therapy lab staff utilised the adapted reading test which consists of choosing shapes to identify the shapes shown on the screen. My son was able to do it reasonably well.
Last week he had to again undergo eye check for power with dilatation. This time he had his iPad with Avaz keyboard loaded and set to voice out each letter typed. And he did just that typed on the Avaz keyboard to voice out as an alternative to reading from the charts. It was a great sense of fulfillment to actually experience Avaz becoming his voice in the real world in a very practical and real situation. Best part was I was not in the picture anywhere other than just explaining to him what was to be done as a follow up to the technician doing so too. Post that the interaction was solely between the technician and him. And this was not at the Vision Therapy lab like the previous occasion. This was at the Paediatric Ophthalmolgy section which was an added bonus. Although the entire hospital staff is trained and sensitised to interact with children and individuals with special needs including autism still these interactions are not as frequent for the general staff as compared to the Vision Therapy lab staff in the context of autism. It was a great achievement for our son and we felt really happy. A big thank you to Team Avaz for enriching our lives.
Sharing so that other parents too could make use of Avaz for this real life situation which could ease our childrens lives.
